Sometimes You Get Sent Ted Williams and Babe Ruth Cards In The Mail By Accident

Last week I won a "buy it now" auction for a copy of Vic Power's 1959 Topps card for my Vic Power Card Of The Week series.

It was $4.00 and free shipping so I was expecting a white paper envelope and a card in a top loader.

Yesterday I received a larger than expected padded envelope. I ripped it open and low and behold Vic Power was nowhere to be found. Although, I did find Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Nap Lajoie and an unknown New York Jet. Take a look:

Pretty nice right? A few years ago I sold a lot of my CD collection on eBay and Amazon and on a couple of those orders I sent the wrong CD to the customers. It was a huge headache to clear up but I luckily made it through without getting negative feedback. But my $6.00 CD wasn't $75 dollars worth of cards and I can only imagine the other guy's reaction when he opens his white envelope and finds Vic Power staring back at him.

What year/brand are they? I know you are going to give them back, but wow, what an error by the seller!

Those are 1961 Fleer cards.

I'm sort of waiting for a frantic e-mail from the seller. I'm going to see how it plays out.
