It was just the other day that I mentioned the generosity of the blogging community, and at that time, I wasn’t referring to cards, nor am I at this time. Instead, I am talking about a certain non-blogger, with whom most of us have interacted.
A few weeks ago, I showed off some bobbleheads that I have obtained over the past months. Upon seeing the post, a certain person, let’s call him Mark, asked if I would be interested in a David Ortiz bobblehead. Of course, I said, yes.
A few days ago, this showed up. Mark said that he had an extra bobblehead, so I thought it would be an older, perhaps slightly worn item. Upon closer examination, however, I noticed that this is just the opposite.
This is from 2014 and was part of a Stadium Giveaway on April 7, though it took me a bit of research to find the specific day. In terms of condition, I won’t offer a long diatribe of its quality, but let me say that I can find no fault or flaw.
Needless to say, when this showed up, it made anything that I sent to him seem insignificant, but I will continue to try.
Now it resides on the shelf in my classroom of collectibles. Thanks, Mark.
