Phenomenal Fuji 'Trade'

I put the word trade in apostrophes in the title of this post because it was never meant to be a trade.

I commented to Fuji and let him know I had most of the cards he needed to finish a 1993 Upper Deck baseball set he had picked up. He sent me his address and I got the cards ready to ship and............TOTALLY forgot about them.

I know we have all done this. But I forgot about them for the better part of a year!

So, when I suddenly recalled them after looking through old emails I sent them on their way, hoping he still lived at the same address.

And he did, thank goodness.

Then I saw they had arrived safely there and he posted about the cards.

Then he mentioned in the post he was sending a package of Cubs and White Sox cards my way.

I was not expecting to get anything back for the cards since I sent them as a favor but I was excited to find that out since I root for all Chitown teams equally.

A few days later I get a package in the mail and start to open it not knowing what to expect and certainly not expecting what he ended up sending.

What I received was an insane amount of awesomeness compared to what I had sent out, including a hard to find card which only a few lucky people get to possess.

On to the cards!

First there was this card:
