Default OFFICIAL 2011 Blowout Secret Santa Picture Thread

OK folks.....Now I know people travel for the Holidays so if you are travelling and wish to open your present and post the pictures please do it here.

I would ask that if you already caved (tsk, tsk) take some pictures and post your gifts. If you have been a good doobie and not opened I would ask that you wait until Friday 12/23/2011 to open and post.

If you do not receive a gift by Friday PLEASE PM ME. There are quite a few Santa's that did not get their last item until the weekend.

I will make sure everyone is taken care of. Some very nice elves have also offered to help but I want to be certian nothing was received before sending gifts out.

I would like to thank everyone who participated and kept up their end of the agreement. I would like to say a special thank you to those who went above and beyond. You know who you are.

I read the card that came with my gift, and it gave away what was wrapped so nicely in the box. I must say, my gift giving skills suck compared to that of the person who got my name! I have yet to open the present itself, but just knowing what's inside has got me giddy as a catholic schoolgirl at a coed mixer!

Lol...wouldnt it be great if you opened the box and all that was in it was a white decoy with the words "gotcha" on it....

This is a great idea(the secret santa) and a great tradition to continue. Merry Christmas everyone

Wow..Love that Super. Ok...I thought I was traveling (hehe haha)...Thank you love the new additions to my Boggs and Stanton PCs. No great hidden inserts/autos/sp''s in the packs though - but I think you've convinced me to add that part to mine next year!

The Boggs is 002/250...will have to see if I have 001 and love the SPA Patch Auto!

Oh cool, I didn't really want to open mine on Christmas since I didn't want to tell my family I'd exchanged gifts with people over the internet. (And I didn't want them to be jealous if I happened to get more excited about a gift from a stranger than something they got me :P).

Will open before I head home tomorrow and post pics

My secret santa got me a couple of nice Carlos Delgado game used cards (really love the look of the fashionably great one), and and a mini box of 2011 Finest

Here are scans:



I was really stoked to see the mini box as my LCS sold out of this immediately and it's something I never would have bought for myself online. Also the first time I've gotten a box of cards for Christmas in a really long time . Got the one base I really wanted (Freeman RC), and some other nice parallels and the Dual Relic Auto.

Many thanks to my secret santa. It was a ton of fun opening your gift!
