Confession time... I wrote this post earlier because I knew I wouldn't have time to post today. Why? Well, I'm playing hooky from work today so that I could take in my first Wrigley Field Home Opener!
I'm hoping to stay warm and dry while witnessing the Cubs kick some Brewers butt! I'll report back tomorrow and let you know how things went, but until then I'll try to keep everyone entertained with the third installment of PWEs from Wes over at Jaybarkerfan's Junk.
How about an '81 Future Stars card of three guys I never heard of before?
An '87 Donruss Eckersley and an '87 Fleer Jerry Mumphrey. Men with mustaches. Nice.
How about a pair of rookie cards? Fukudome is one of my favorites and Gary Scott was supposed to be the third baseman who was going to stop door from revolving at the hot corner. Alas, Fukudome is back in Japan now, and Scott was certainly no Ron Santo.
I love and I hate this next card: '81 Donruss Dick Tidrow.
1. Ivy in the backgound
2. Killer stirrups
3. Righteously high leg kick
4. Legendary Fu Manchu 'stache!
Reasons why I hate thee:
1. That is one miscut card!
Normally, I don't worry much about the condition of older cards, but this one is all on Donruss. I actually held another card up to the Tidrow card to make sure that it was truly a rectangle. I think the card is giving off some serious trapezoid vibes, or maybe it's just playing Jedi-mind tricks on me.
Either way, I need to stop looking at, because the math teacher in me just can't handle it any longer.
We're halfway home on the PWEs. We'll pick up #4 on Thursday, as I hope to have a recap of my trip to Wrigley tomorrow.
Thank again, Wes!
