Incredible ‘Through The Mail’ Mail Day Courtesy Of Mr. Wade Boggs!!
As soon as i decided to jump in and go after more baseball cards of Wade Boggs for my collection, the first thing I did was document each and every card I owned that featured him as the primary subject so I could get my ‘Boggs Checklist’ up to date and proceed with my expansion plans.
As I went through the cards I already owned, I saw that a few doubles had crept into the mix. And they were all pretty good looking cards too. My mind began to spin, and I started formulating my plan…
First, I went to a few of the sports autograph websites that I frequent to see if Boggs’ signing habits through the mail were still positive. And as soon as I got that confirmation, I pulled three cards from my small stack of ‘doubles’, jotted a quick letter to Wade, and packed the cards up with a small cash donation and return self-addressed-stamped-envelope.
And off they went.
And just 2 1/2 weeks later, my three cards were returned to me and they are all signed beautifully in Blue Sharpie.
Have a look:
1988 Score – base
1991 Score ‘Dream Team’ w/HOF 05 inscription
2001 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’
I told you that they were good looking cards!!!
And even better with that bright Blue Wade Boggs autograph scribbled on each one.
I am so thrilled that Boggs is still signing so generously for his fans. I may try to grab a few more while I can – time to go back and see what other ‘doubles’ I have that may look just as nice as the above cards.
Which one do you like the best? My pick is the 1988 Score card – the Blue really pops!!!
