I have always used a famous quote on my blog. You may have noticed it near my image on the right. Usually, it's a quote from a baseball player, or some other sports figure. Recently, I started using the brief "About Me" text near my image to place a quote from famous thinkers. Today, is the first day that I use a quote from the most famous thinker ever, Jesus Christ.
Ok, yeah, I know I just lost half of you, and that's Ok. To each his own.
The reasons I used today's quote are; 1.) It relates to card collecting 2.) It pays homage to one of my favorite bloggers, Colbey from Cardboard Collections 3.) I am a Christian. it's selfish of me to not spread the good news about Jesus.
A couple of days ago, I got a box in the mail. The above stack shows what was enclosed. Return address... Rock Hill, SC. I did not have any trades in the works with Hops. I didn't get in on one of his awesome El-Cheapo Group Breaks. "Why is this box-o-cards here?", I thought. I think I have figured it out... sort of. It's not as simple as, "love your neighbor as yourself", but it's close.
1994 Fleer Extra Bases. They're big!
For comparison, an Extra Bases, a regular, and a gypsy Queen Mini.
Hands down the coolest card in the box. Check out the sliding player.
1986 O-Pee-Chee. I don't have much O in my collection.
An awesome Papa Grande card. If you have not been paying attention to the Tigers, Papa is having a record setting season. Details here at the Detroit Freep.
Travis fryman was a guy that I thought would become a lifetime Tiger. In the mold of a Trammell or a Kaline. He went to Cleveland at some point, and that was that. Nice Leaf Limited card.
These guys look like they're in pain.
