June 28th, 2011 by slangon

Here’s some more cards that Chris from Project ’62 sent my way in exchange for doing a custom relic card for him. We’re getting into junk wax territory now, so tread lightly. The majority of what he sent me from this period were from different Topps Traded sets. As a matter of fact, he single […]
