A recent TTM success I had come back to my mailbox was from Merv Rettenmund. Both of the cards I sent turned out beautifully. Merv played for the Orioles in the late 60's and into the early 70's before he was traded to Cincinnati. He played a key role as an outfielder on those great Orioles teams from that time period.

I recently made a trade with the astonishingly consistent Night Owl. Its probably been nearly 10 years since I made a trade with Greg. He sent some great cards this time.
the Hostess food issues. This Doug DeCinces Hostess from 1977 is just the beginning of my team sets of them.

Here's a nice TTM success that showed up in my mailbox a few weeks back. Wally Bunker was a teenage phenom for the Orioles in the mid 60's. He made his MLB Debut at the age of 18 and fired a complete shutout against the Dodgers in the 1966 World Series. Arm troubles and ineffectiveness plagued him after that defining game and threw his last major league pitch when he was 26.
He and his wife also published some children's books in 2015.
I mailed these 2 cards out on November 1st, 2023 and got them back November 14th 2023 for a 13 day TAT. Thank You Mr. Bunker!

I'm beginning to wonder if I wasted my money on this value box. Not a whole lot of true rookie cards and no Orioles as of yet. Rookie Debut cards are ok, and I've gotten some decent trade bait but nothing I really collect. Lets see what today's pack holds:
