    Hiya Mike

    How you been?

    I've missed you "on the block."

    That's a creative ornament! Very nice.

    Merry Christmas.

    So basically my kid won't be able to go to college, but at least I'll have a set where the three most expensive cards are of a player I despise ~ CDsNuts

    Hi Barry. image

    It is nice to be able to read the boards and not work for a change.

    Mike was kind enough to make one of these for me as well. I told him that my wife usually has "control" of the ornaments that go up on the tree, however after seeing this, she even agreed that it was very cool and it went right up..

    Very generous gesture indeed!

    And here is the one Mike made for me. Man, it cost him TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to purchase all those Bowman cards to make this one! LOL Thanks again Mike.

    My wife was impressed as well which enabled it to get a prime location on the tree. image

    Those are very VERY cool. I wish I had some talent in the arts and crafts department!

    Thanks to Mike as well!!! I got one too, a Jim Sundberg. Took it out of the package, began the walk to the tree to put it on, accidently slipped on a piece of cardboard in the floor, instinctively reached for the wall to keep from falling and knocked a couple pieces off of my ornament image I'm not crafty enough to figure out how to put it back together but my wife said she'll help me tomorrow.

    Thanks Mike, I appreciate the gift, and she's a lot smarter then me so she'll be able to fix it I hope.

    Sorry to hear that Mike. Remind me not to have you handle my unopened boxes. image

    Didn't you make these as a kid? Maven might be able to figure it out too. I remember making them and I'm actually going to try to make my own. I just hope I don't infringe on Mike's patent.

    Mike’s still active in the hobby, attends the national every year, etc. Just doesn’t come around here much at all anymore.
