A Couple Cards From The Antique Store

I ventured out with the fam today. We stopped by the Antique & Toy Mall and I decided to check out some cards that have been there for months, maybe years. There were between 8-10 rows of cards, containing various sports and years. They were priced $1.00 a piece, 7 for $5.00, and so on. I was only able to get through one row and a couple stacks, but I pulled a couple keepers. Well, one keeper. I will try to make it through the entire collection, next time.

The first card is a 2010 Bowman Chrome Draft Blue Refractor Neil Walker RC #ed/199. I got this for tradebait, but it is also my favorite type of refractor. Blue. He has put together a solid season and the Pirates will only continue to get better. I semi-pull for the Reds, but I would like to see the Pirates do some damage in the postseason.

It was also hilarious to watch them get to Johnny Cueto, last year. Here's the link.

I don't always collect football cards, but when I do, I prefer University of Kentucky Alumni. I picked up this uncirculated 2008 Topps Chrome Gold Refractor Andre Woodson RC #ed/199. My fondest memories of Kentucky football, involve Andre Woodson. I like the way the team looks, this year. I can sense some SEC wins. We might make it out of the Toilet Bowl and into the Cereal Bowl.

Have a good Tuesday, and Go Yankees!!!!

My Solution For The Redskins Name

I am aware of all the uproar over the political correctness of the Washington Redskins name. I can see where people are coming from, but I have a solution for both parties. They can keep the name, but they will have to make some subtle changes. All they have to do is put a space between Red and Skins and become all about potatoes. I don't know if that region is known for potatoes, but they can start. It's so crazy, it just might work.
