For Christmas, my step-daughter and her husband got me a gift certificate from Ebay. I recently found an item that I've been looking to acquire at a decent price and ended up winning it.
It is a 1968 empty box that contained the individual packs of baseball cards that year. I am especially fond of it for 2 reasons: The first is that as an 11 year old in 1968, it was at the peak of my collecting youth. Second, there is a picture of Mickey Mantle on the box.
Incidentally, the packs I put in the box are not from 1968 but rather 1979. I can't afford even one 1968 unopened pack of baseball cards.
The box will forever be special to me for another reason. I won it on the day my step-daughter gave birth to her first child, a precious baby boy named Wyatt.
Thank you Jason and Laura for both gifts!
