All the Wallet Card

Is this getting ridiculous?

I've really bought in to the whole Wallet Card thing. Ever since Gavin of Baseball Card Breakdown invented it, I've been throwing my Griffey up in front of just about anything: rocks, trees, pop-tarts, auroras, scantily-clad ladies, wienermobiles - the list goes on.

Part of the reason is that it was created right before two major events: a trip to Canada and the two weeks of the Mardi Gras season. I expect my #WalletCard activity will quiet down significantly soon enough now that all that is through. Until then, let us rage.

I guess what I'm saying is that this is a reference post for all my Wallet Card posts in chronological order.

  1. I think I need to declare you 2015 Q1 wallet card champ to even the playing field going forward, since (even with 10 months left in the year to catch up) I don't think anyone can compete with what you've been throwing down! Great stuff.

    1. *runs around the house, arms raised in victory, singing the song of my people*

      *gets tired, eats Cheetos, takes nap*

      Thanks, Gavin! I'll find some more crazy nonsense to give the Griffey treatment, don't you worry.

  2. Hahahaha!!!

    Phenomenal, I love it.

    I haven't gotten to the phenomenally insane place you've taken this yet, e.g...

    "I've been throwing my Griffey up in front of just about anything: rocks, trees, pop-tarts, auroras, scantily-clad ladies, wienermobiles - the list goes on."


    ...but I'm going to work on it.

    So far I've taken Gwynn to two different states (one being Hawaii).

    And a brewery.

    ; )

    Gavin, as I've posted elsewhere, you nailed it with this one, my friend. Keep your glorious mind coming up with more ways for us cardboard-loving nutjobs to stay active!
