Bo Lowered the BOom and Hit Me with a Cardboard BOmb

Aloha, everybody, 

I recently received a behemoth of cardboard from Bo, the man behind Sportscards Brought to Life. Bo came upon a whooooole lotta cards and he was generous enough to share the wealth with his fellow collector/bloggers. I was lucky enough to join in the fun and Bo was cool enough to fill a big ol' box and send it to me. 

 Check this out: 



Upwards of 650 cards of Dodgers present and past, World Series Heroes, Hall of Famers, scrubs, tributes, RCs, cards to share with you all....and more. Wow! 

I wish I could just pass the box to you as if you were sitting in the room with me, and we could both enjoy every card inside, but that's not possible, so let's enjoy some highlights.



I really enjoy these tribute cards of the early players and HOFers. I've picked up a few cards from these sets here and there, and Bo's box really expanded my collection. 



These are beautiful tributes. Great photos on classic designs...



And simple backsides with career stats. 



I had a few from this (also beautiful) set, and always wanted more. How did Bo know? 



Josh Gibson, Hoyt Wilhelm, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson. What a start. AmIright? This is just a scratch of the surface. 

I'll be presenting the different segments from this box over the next few posts, so stay tuned and we'll check out some more next time. 

THANKS for the cards, Bo. I really appreciate them all. 

Aloha!

  1. 1) Bo is the best.

    2) Nice chunk of the 2001 UD Hall of Famers set, the first I completed after starting my blog. I would love to master set that thing.

  3. Go Bo! Very nice of him to send a whole storage box your way. Yes, it would be fun if we could all sit with you and sort through each card.. but I'm looking forward to reading about them!
