Childhood Baseball Cards – GONE CRAZY!

Hey!  Welcome back to my blog everybody.  If you’ve been gone for a while, don’t worry, no real big Blue Jay news.  The Toronto Star reported on how streets in Mississauga (part of Toronto) were named after Blue Jay players in the late 1990’s.  There is a (Roger) Clemens Street, a (Kelvim) Escobar Avenue and stuff like that.  Big news!  They must be hurting.  Anyway, here is a different look at some of the baseball cards I showed in the previous post.  Just having some fun.  This design was inspired by the movie ‘Indian in the Cupboard.’  I wish that happened to me, except instead of toys, baseball cards.  It could be called “Baseball Player in my Shoebox,” or something like that???

    Thank you so much guys!!

    Indian in th Cupboard, the kid had a toy Indian, a magic cupboard turned the toy into a real life minature indian. He could do that with all his other toys. He brings a cowboy toy to life, the cowboy and the indian fight until they later become friends. One of his toys gets injured, he brings a WW2 medic toy to save him. At the end, he lets the little indian return home I think. It was a pretty imaginative Disney movie.

    Very cool, Homer. I’m glad I’m not the only one who revels in his baseball card memories. Glad you liked my personal Joe Carter story too. Because of that one swing, he will forever be a part of who I am. Three cheers for the ’93 Jays!

    Love the design!

    On a side note: I know his stay was short, but, where does Paul Molitor rank in the hearts of Jays fans (as far as all-time favorites).

    He’s #2 in Milwaukee-only behind Yount. He’s one of my all-time favorite players. Ted Williams once said he had the sweetest swing since DiMaggio! WOW!
