My First Wallet Card Submission

Remember that drinking game I told you guys about wherein you burn cards featuring players with unfunny names? Well, we had a rousing round of it last night around the fire pit.  The winner was none other than Goose Gozzo who just barely squeaked by my vote, Paul Assenmacher.  I thought the combination of "Ass" and "macher" would win the night handily, but everyone else seemed to prefer Goose's alliterative handle, silly first name, and double-z spelling.  Majority ruled.  I'm not bitter.

Anyhoo, I figured it was a great opportunity to take my first photo for Wallet Card, and here it is:

Ahhhhh - toasy warm.

A lot of crappy cards lost their lives while Griffey sat on the sidelines and watched, smiling all the while.  It was rather disturbing now that I think about it.

The card remains in what I would call good to very good condition.  It won't win any gold-numbered BGS slabs, but it's having the ride of its life.

P.S. At 3:22 this video gets BANANAS.


  1. This sure beats my wallet card's trip to pick up the kids from practice ,lol!Awesome post ;)

  2. OH MY! I can't look at this! All cards have a place and the fire isn't it lol

    1. As a note: all tonight's cards came from the same box. They were sandy and rat-chewed, every one. I assure you - they were garbage.
