Today, 2000-odd years ago, Jesus Christ was born. Christmas also has the added attraction of being the big gift-giving holiday of the year. As this is a baseball card blog, I'll just say in passing that it is good to remember that it is, after all, a holiday celebrating the birth of Christ.
I got some great baseball cards this year, so thanks mom and dad! It took me forever to decide what I wanted, though. I was originally going to ask for some 1959 Topps hall of famers, but I realized all of a sudden that I was tired of 1959 Topps. That feeling passed off, but I am going to work on some other sets before I go back to working on it. Don't want to be too burned out on it. I eventually decided on 1956 Topps Yankees, because you can never go wrong with 1956 Topps. Because I decided so late, there are still a couple of stragglers in the mail. I got 6 today, and they're all great.
Overall, I've been having a very good Christmas, and I hope all of y'all have a very merry Christmas too!Extra: I wrote in my post about getting my Comc shipment shipped that "My order is supposed to be shipped by March 10th next year. I'm praying that a miracle will happen, and I'll get my cards in a reasonable time. I know that almost certainly won't happen though."
