Two days ago I placed down a few early bids on some silent auction items at the annual P-town card show. I wasn't very hopeful of winning anything, but I received a phone call yesterday informing me that I won an item.
Ernie Broglio auto isn't bad for five bucks! For those who don't know, Ernie Broglio was the main piece coming back to the Cubs from the Cardinals for Lou Brock. Yes, that Lou Brock.
Once I got the card home I noticed the auto was in ballpoint pen and the words "Player Sample" were above Ernie's name. So I did a quick Ebay search and swiped this photo:
So, what do you all make of this variation?
Yesterday morning I was gifted my first Cody Bellinger card from a co-worker.

Moon or eyeball, I will proudly wear this t-shirt around next spring once it warms up! Yes, I am a Cubs fan, but I'm also a baseball fan. I've owned Rockies and Rays shirts in the past and eventually had to throw them out because they got too thin. I currently have a Pirates shirt in the rotation to go along with my new Astros shirt.
My wife. She's so cool! Thanks, babe!
