Ten years, The Fifth

As the Ten Years giveaway rolls into another week, I suppose I should give an update as to when everyone should expect to receive the cards they've claimed, yes?

In honor of ten years, I'm gonna try to do ten of these posts - if I can scrounge up enough interesting extras from the piles of spares boxes in my closet, that is. The process of mailing everything will probably take a little while, but everyone should (hopefully) expect their cards not long after the end of these giveaway posts. I figure it's just better to wait until the end - rather than mailing stuff in parts - as to not accrue substantial shipping charges. I appreciate everyone's patience, and thanks for helping me celebrate ten years!

In the meantime, everything in tonight's post is up for grabs - including the above A&G Torii Hunter "Memorabilia(?)" relic (unless I'm way off base, that's a bat piece) - so let's see what those boxes in my closet yielded this week.

Happily surprised there's a Wilhelm that hasn't been claimed! That's a really nice card, although I believe it's the same photo Topps used in 2016 Archives. Thanks once again!

Hi Nick. Nice give-away. Is this open to Canadians? I see a few unclaimed cards that I could use either in my set collection or PC. Thanks, Bruno

P.S. What is your TCDb ID? I probably have cards you need, even on your short list.

But Amos Otis looks so sad to be passed over, could you put Page 3, #5 aside for me?
