OK, maybe one thing....the piles and piles of cards that surround me each time I write a post. Ever since, oh let's say the middle of July, I have felt very little motivation to put things in their proper place. It seems that every time I do sort out one group of cards, another group or 3 arrives to replace that .
So to punish myself, and maybe you too, I've decided to hunt through some of the piles and, well, try to muse on some of the cards I see.
Cards such as Blue Yu. Yu Darvish has been around for several months now, and I have not taken one opportunity to use his name in a play on words. Awful lines such as...
I'm calling Yu
Me and Yu and a dog named Boo
We all live in his Yu-niverse
Yu can't always get what Yu want...
He's in the prime of his Yuth.
OK, I know, that's enough....here's the Blue Yu at least (It's funny, lately I've wound up with a lot of cards that belong in Texas.)
(HEY Dave Stewart, what did you think of all those Yuisms???)
You will all see a post from me next week about a certain autograph card that I pulled recently (contest), but in the mean time here's an auto that just doesn't make sense.
Please tell me how "Erik Gustafsson" turns into an auto with the letters S V S. What???
All right...let's see what else is on the desk here...how about we run to the Hills and get some cards?
|Are there any Hills stores left?|
Another part of the package that my wife found me at the Goodwill a few weeks back. I had never seen any of these glossy Team MVP cards released by Topps in 1989. There were a few decent names in the pile, such as Mark Langston, Fred McGriff, and Dale Murphy to name a few. Oh and those Dodger players above as well....they'll do in a pinch.
Come on Topps, you waited until Series 2 to put his card out, couldn't you have at least used the name that the guy wants to be called?? Giancarlo if you need help spelling it.....
|Mike Pelfrey wants him banished|
Finally, a little love for the 64 Topps set that I'm putting together. I would love to see more cards like this in modern sets (I know that Heritage is doing it...)
|Wonder what those 2 people in the stands are doing there?|
For all of you that made it to this portion of the post, be thankful for one thing...
I didn't dip into the piles of GQ and A&G....have a great weekend!!
Thanks for reading, Robert
