A Box of Astros Swag from Mark's Ephemera

A little while ago I got an e-mail from Mark, who is taking a break from his Mark's Ephemera blog to do some other things. He said he some stuff to send to an Astros fan. I think I responded by saying that I probably didn't have much from his want list to send in return. He said it didn't matter. Then I forgot about it. He forgot about it too, for a while. Then I got an e-mail from him saying that he had sent a package and I should expect it soon. It arrived near the end of last week, and it was a little larger than I expected (that's what she said!). First up was this Greeneville Astros cup, which celebrates their Rookie-league Championship in 2004.

Also included in the box was a Jose Altuve jersey that is pretty similar to the one pictured here:

It's pretty cool. I wore it around all day. I actually pulled the Altuve jersey out of the box first, and I kind of wondered how a guy from Tennessee came into possession of an Astros jersey. Then I saw the Greeneville Astros cup and it all made sense to me.

Thank you for the swag, Mark! Your package really made my day!

  1. You're more than welcome. Sorry it took so long. Glad it made your day. It made my wife's day when extra clutter got out of the house.
