I received two unexpected early Christmas gifts today.  First, I'd like to thank Jon Gum of JS Sports Cards for tracking down a 2007 Sacramento River Cats Multi-Ad team set.  I received that set in the mail today and flipped through it looking for Justin Duchscherer #11 in the set.  However, I kept flipping and flipping, and I found no Justin Duchscherer cards in the set.  Did Beckett have it wrong?  Yes!  The very last card in the set (#35 of 35) is an alumni card featuring Justin Duchscherer along with a number of other former River Cats!  I was getting a bit nervous there, but that card is a great addition to my Justin Duchscherer collection.  I will upload a scan of the card shortly. 

The second unexpected gift came in the form of an out-of-the-blue email from an individual asking me if I'd be interested in purchasing a Justin Duchscherer card from him.  He opened a couple boxes of 2009 Bowman Chrome, pulled the Justin Duchscherer Yellow Printing Plate 1/1, and found me through this website!  It's very cool to be contacted about a 1/1 card, and I'm thankful that he took the time to find me.  We reached a quick agreement and the printing plate will be on its way to me on Tuesday, December 27!  Two fantastic Christmas presents for my collection! 

Here's wishing a Merry Christmas to everyone, and a Happy New Year!
