This year, I've also received a few packages in trades. It certainly brightens my day to see a hand-written envelope or package, or one of those cards that tells me something doesn't fit in my box.
I took a peek in my box yesterday night when I got home, and there was a pretty big priority envelope in there. You know, the ones that are used to mail packages. I didn't really recognize the sender, and the customs declaration said catalog. Hmm. Did I order something and forget about it? What US company has my address in Japan?
Maybe it's a Beckett magazine or something like that, with some cards mixed in. Or some collectible book. But who would send me this? I'm aware of one trade package being on the way...
So, I got the envelope open, and this was inside:
I searched inside the box. Nothing. I looked at the "from" name. Robert Klevens, the owner of Prestige Collectibles, who sells the guide. I searched my emails, skimmed through the book. Nothing.
Of course, I've spent a little bit of time flipping through some of the pages, enjoying seeing some new photos and information on old sets. This vintage edition covers sets up through 1990, just before the dawn of the Japanese modern age and BBM's first set.
Now, the question is, who sent this? I'm not sure if it was meant to be an anonymous gift, so please leave a comment or send me an email if it was from you!
And a big..
