This shocking lack of love is probably due to the fact that they know absolutely nothing about cards, and are afraid to get me a dud.
But hey, even a dud would be nice if I get cards, right?
But wait! As you may have guessed since I'm writing this post, the drought has ended! And I'm only writing about it 3 and 1/2 months later. I guess that'll teach them!
OK, so I didn't get any (good) cards, but this is a start. The day was Father's Day. I am a father. This entitles me to pampering, mockery and usually a gift or two. This year, I awoke to four black frames divided into four horizontal sections. The horizontal sections each had five clear plastic cases in each. The cases had sports cards from the junk wax era in them. Something like this, except the cards in mine were much worse:
First, I put most of my 2003 DK Evolution set into one. It looks great on the wall!
Next, I went through my Mark McGwires and picked out some pretty ones. This also looks great! I haven't spoken much about my Big Mac collection on this blog, but I have over 600 different McGwires! These are all doubles!
Why I saved the worst picture for last, I don't know, but I put basketball funkys in the last frame. Much like the baseball funkys, this one looks great in real life.
