Well, it's official: the Free Card Friday craze has finally hit Dime Boxes!
First off, I apologize for getting around to this so late, considering how many cards I've already claimed from quite a few of you generous Free Card Friday hosts out there. But better late then never: everything you see in today's post is free for the taking. I ask but one favor: please do not share this post anywhere online. While I'm more than happy to give these cards away, I want to try to limit the claims to people who actually read this blog, because you loyal readers out there are the reason I'm still doing this blogging thing after so long.
Other than that, I have no restrictions. I'm using the honor system as far as whether you actually read this blog or not, so please try to abide. Claim as many cards as you want, as often as you want. First come, first serve. I'm hoping to do this every week (or at least every other week), so if you'd like to build a stack over multiple Free Card Fridays, feel free to do so. If you'd like your cards shipped right away, that's fine too, just say as much in the comments. Also if you're not a regular trade partner of mine please email your mailing address to me at nickpecucci AT gmail DOT com.
I'm making a note to remind myself to order more stamps right now.
Basically, the mechanics are gonna work like Julie's "Pick Pockets" system -- I'm gonna post pages of cards, and the cards are numbered 1-9 from left to right (Rojas would be #1, Howard #4, Boone #7, etc.).
If you want, say, the Steve Busby from this page, comment saying Page 1 - #3 (Busby) or something similar to that. The three '69 stamps at the top of this post are available as well, comment with Hands stamp - Intro or something (take one or take all three!). I'll also post notes for the cards in said page, if applicable. (If you have any further questions, please let me know!)
But enough of me babbling: it gives me great pleasure to introduce Free Card Friday here on Dime Boxes! Have fun!
Page #1 Notes: Oddballs! Mays has remnants of a large red piece of tape on the back. Others are in at least decent shape.
Page #2 Notes: Some vintage, with usual scuffs and marks of time. The '62 and '63 are fairly heavily creased, and the '78 Bench has a large crease in the top-left corner. Others are in standard vintage condition.
Page #3 Notes: Shiny stuff, rookies, etc. Ohtani is a Big League box-bottom, Matthews Jr. is /999, others are standard refractors/parallels/inserts.
Page #4 Notes: Dime Box Miscellany! Big Unit is a GQ SP, Cespedes is a Throwback Thursday card I accidentally bought twice on COMC (nice job, Nick).
That's what I've got for this week. Again, feel free to take as few or as many as you wish. Hopefully there's at least a few in here that'll find good homes.
