2017 Christmas Haul ....

Every year the family asks --- what would you like for Christmas.
My answer is of coarse Baseball Cards !!!  or other baseball related memorabilia.
(sometimes GB Packer items)
And they always give that look.  (all collectors know the look)

Well, they all did a fabulous job this year.
