Contest Winnings from Crinkly Wrappers

Today I found a package in the mail that I had been waiting for for a week. I had been in Florida for the past few days, working with my dad on a shoot (more details on that later). I saw that my winnings from Crinkly Wrappers' contest had arrived. Inside would be a card from every Topps set since 1952, and some Yankees stuff.

Yankee stuff of note-
2010 Turkey Red Thurman Munson. Great card, of a young, beardless Thurm.
Obak 2010 Mike Coolbaugh, an up-and-comer for the Yanks.
1991 O-Pee-Chee Kevin Maas. Wow.
4 Yo Mamma cards- 2004 Thome/Schmidt, 1966 Robin Roberts, 1993 Thomas and 1957 Yogi/Mantle. Awesome.
2009 Legendary Cuts Sabathia, Wang, Jeter and Rivera. Cool.
2009 Icons Wang and Rivera. I liked that set, so those are great.
A few 206 Mickey Mantles
some Topps stuff from the past few years.
