I Did Get Cards for Christmas

My next door neighbors brought over a nice gift bag. Inside were a couple of tree ornaments for me and Mrs. SMG. At the bottom of the bag was a box of 2011 Topps Update Baseball. One of those rackies with 72 cards. Awesome! I felt like a kid again as I ripped into the box.
The inserts...

I got one diamond Giveaway card. It resulted in this;
I would have never guessed that Staub had over 2,500 hits. From what I heard, he was as slow as Konerko.
The rest of the box was loaded with base cards. Nothing Earth shattering. Fun to look at.
I have thoughts about the return of the NBA too, but why ruin a great day?


  1. I think Staub had 1500 hits against the Cubs, at least that's how I remember it.

  2. I almost got drunk staring at that awesome Bench. Merry Christmas!
