This card was released in 1995 by the WWE and was available only in the WWF Magazine. Specifically this card was part of the set that was included in the April 1995 issue.
Last week I got a FaceBook friend request from a woman named Jennifer that I didn't know and it wasn't the typical spam friend request this person was local but I just didn't recognize her so I figured it was a mistake and hit delete. A couple days later I get a Facebook Messenger message from her:
"Hey! Sorry to bother you but my dad is also Michael Labbe and I think he got a piece of your mail which he accidentally opened (because of the name of course). When he was telling me about it I remembered you from the dojo with the kids! Did you order a wrestling card?"
I order wrestling cards multiple times a month and this is the first time that this has happened so I thought it was odd. My oldest son took karate for two years and Jennifer was one of the teenagers that help out with Canaan's age group. Thing is he hasn't taken Karate in five years and I just didn't recognize her.
So I pick up the envelope from her and immediately I'm confused for two reasons, her dad lives in Pittston and I live in Gardiner. The towns are close to each other and they use the same post office for delivery but they are different towns. Also the address on the card is from my Gardiner, PO Box which I closed out in 1995! And yes the envelope was postmarked January 15, 2019.
