Mail Call: Thoughts and Sox Parcel

I sent Adam from Thoughts and Sox an Edgar Renteria jersey card a little while ago and received some thank you cards earlier this week...

Two Campaign cards from the Topps Series II set off my Needs List...

The election of 1796 was one of the most important in history in that it was the first peaceful transfer of power from one party to another...although it seems funny to think about it now, the Federalists could have very well violently kept power rather than stepping down to Jefferson.

On a separate note, if you haven't seen the John Adams miniseries I highly recommend it.

These cards always remind me that the problems that we face today have all been faced before...nothing we do is original...take for example the election of 1888 in which Grover Cleveland won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College total to Benjamin Harrison.


Plus two Bowman Heritage Umpire cards:

If "John Adams" were on HBO, I would have already seen it. Hopefully the public library here will get a copy of the series on DVD, and I will check it out if they do.
