Let's see, my six favorite fictional heroes in no particular order would probably be Batman, Flash, Captain America, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, and James Bond. I certainly love me some action flicks!
A voice from the background yells, "Hey, this a Cubs and baseball card blog! What's with the six heroes tangent?"
Well, every time I visit the 2x3 Heroes blog my mathematical mind can't help by multiply. I'm a math major after all. I've been visiting JediJeff's blog pretty regularly as of late because he's been posting with a fury which could only stem from a delivery from Jaybarkerfan's Junk.
AND, it just so happens that JediJeff dropped a nice padded envelope on me a week or so ago. Let's see what my favorite Pale Hose blogger sent me!
Minnnnnnnniiiiiiiis! Anthony Rizzo, the Hawk, and Rogers Hornsby in mini form. I always think of Hornsby as a Cardinal. Either way, that's a nice start to a package!
Hall of Fame Cubs! Ryno, Mad Dog, Fergie, and Mr. Cub join The Hawk. Those, my friends, are some great nicknames.
Cubs for my player collections. Campana was the small fast guy who worked his tail off to make it. Wait, Dascenzo did the same thing just twenty years earlier. Every team seems to have a guy who fits that mold. Am I right?
Relics! These are actually my first Ron Santo and Mark Prior relics. The Santo is numbered to 125 and shows a spry Santo. I miss Ronnie.
I have a pretty large, unannounced Starlin Castro player collection. But, honestly, he and Rizzo are the only regular Cubs which Topps has recognized the last few years. So I guess I've just accumulating Castro cards because Topps doesn't like to recognize players on losing teams.
We interrupt this trade post for a quick contest: A cardboard prize package to the first blogger who can correctly calculate how many Starlin Castro cards I had before this trade post!
And finally, I've saved the best for last! It's ROCK SHOULDERS!!!!!
A big thanks goes out to JediJeff for a killer trade package. Many new cards to my Cubs collection and plenty of star power. Thanks, Jeff!
