I probably shouldn't be doing this considering how far behind I am in trades, but I got the craving for some cards tonight and once again have some Update inserts and parallels for the grabbing if anyone is interested.
I used to practically get harassed by Cubs collectors because there are or were so many out there. Things have been quiet lately. In the meantime, I have accumulated a few Cubs cards.
I got two League Leader gold parallels, but unfortunately neither of them featured Cardinals.
The back of this card lists Brad Penny as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, who he hasn't played for since 2010. This card honors achievements in the National League only, however, and he didn't rejoin the better league until he (unsuccessfully) became a Giants reliever this summer.
Hmm. Gold Tribe.
"Yes, I am going to throw a ton of innings, more or less toss the concept of the 'pitch count' out the window and people are still going to make fun of my weight. Such is life."
Leave out an 'm' and he's a flower's reproductive organ.
These aren't quite as bad as the vomitfractors of last season, but they're pretty unpleasant. I wish I wasn't so drawn to parallel cards and could exclude them from my team collecting needs. I can't.
Strop like "stop" with an extra letter or like "strope" with an invisible "e"? I think it's the latter?
Da, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Chicken Man!
