You've Got Mail #6: Sportscards From the Dollar Store

Happy December everyone! I'm back after a long break over the Thanksgiving holiday that went by way too fast. I hope everyone else had a nice holiday as well. I ate way too much turkey, watched way too much football, did zero shopping on Black Friday, and even made time for some hockey.

Speaking of hockey, Douglas, the fine proprietor of Sportscards from the Dollar Store, mentioned recently he was going to the Toronto Expo and asked if anyone had any requests. I asked if he could look for some Cincinnati Stingers cards since they are incredibly hard to find, at least in my area. He gladly obliged and sent these my way

These are fantastic. The top four are from the 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee WHA set and the bottom are from the 1975-76 WHA set. I really like the one of Robbie Ftorek in the Phoenix Roadrunners uniform. I'm only one card short of completing the team set from the 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee set now!

Stingers weren't all that Douglas sent, he also included a plethora of other stuff:

This nice Ben Bishop started it off. I became a fan of his during the Stanley Cup playoffs last summer and this is a nice addition to my growing hockey collection.

This Giovani Bernard die cut is awesome! Even though the Bengals aren't undefeated anymore, I still think they'll secure a nice playoff spot, maybe even a first-round bye.

Old school Bengals are the best, especially when it's Esiason and Munoz!

Here's a bunch more Bengals that Douglas sent over. All of these are really nice and will go well in my Bengals binder.

Thanks for the trade Douglas! Hope you enjoyed my return pack.
