The first one that struck me hard and knocked me on my arse. It was a beautiful right cross in the form of a Billy Williams manufactured logo card from Upper Deck... you know, back when they had a license.
Next, a left upper cut connected and the result was a pair of blue eyes. Not black, blue as in the Cubby-blue uniform tops.
I could hardly see straight and the monster was delivering body blows at a fierce rate. Hit after hit after hit.
The Jacque Jones and Jason Kendall cards picture the players with their previous teams, but mention the Cubs as their new teams. Anyone else find it odd that the away jersey piece is paired with Jones in a home uniform and the home jersey piece is pair with Jones in an away uniform? The trend continues with Kendall's card, and the next...
More madness! Gray away swatches and players in the home pinstripes!
Then it emptied its bag of hits and tried once again to best me with mismatched jerseys and swatches.
Kerry Wood collection. It was playing to my strengths!
I once again had my feet under me and I was ready to put the beast down... but it wouldn't go without a fight!
To be continued...
