It's funny how things happen suddenly that give you a taste for your hometown. A taste I really haven't had in a while, even though I love the city.
Within the past week, I found two cards, and one blog, that reminded me of Toronto. (Trevor, if you're reading, check your email)
I got the first card at the card show I hit last Saturday, it's a jersey card of a young Leaf player that I hope very soon will make the lineup and start scoring goals as Leaf fans have wanted him to do since he was drafted a few years back.
The 2nd card that reminded me of home is a card I received from Nick over at Dime Boxes as part of a group of Jays he sent my way:
Again the CN Tower is featured, this time on the Donruss Studio 2004 card of Alex Rios. This card also has a nice view of the Toronto skyline, and the Sky Dome is there, although a little difficult to see. I could be a sarcastic bastard here and say that the only thing really wrong with the card is the player featured on it....
Nope, didn't say it...
I have no intentions of going back to Canada to live. The US of A is the best country on this planet, and one of the proudest days of my life was becoming an American citizen back in 2006. However, no matter where I may end up here, these two cards that are part of my collection now will always remind me of why I bleed blue and white.
Thanks for reading, Robert
