Given today's compelling post by Cardboard Junkie on, well, why people collect, this was especially timely. In addition to Lucy's smiles and Asian players, we collect cards of David Wright, Jamie Moyer, Barry Zito, Curtis Granderson and Micah Owings. So, we said "Oh!" when we pulled this out of the envelope:
"It's like a gold medal," said Lucy. We have several of JM's cards, and a few autographs, but no game used.
And the language is unequivocal...we wonder why it doesn't say "Game Worn" instead of "Game Used," or is it all the same, lawyer-wise? Yes, we know that in regard to relics, we are NAIVE BUMBLEPUPPIES.
We like Jamie because:
- he is kind of ancient to still be playing;
- his pitches are mystifyingly slow;
- and when he speaks about baseball, he becomes truly eloquent.
