Isn't this Micah a good modern baseball card? Total goodness. The pose. The serene expression. The shiny. The number on the back. The rookie cardness. Our only quibble is that perhaps does not rise to the level of a good Micah signature. We have many autographs of Mr. Owings (you can see one if you scroll down the right hand side of the blog), and we wonder what was going on during that particular John Hancock moment--was Micah being defiant to the king? Was he receiving an electric shock? Did he get a fright? Was he signing a contract with Topps to sign 5,000 stickers and he tried to make his signature unreadable in case he changed his mind but then Topps xeroxed the signature and used it on this otherwise good card? Anyway, it's all right, because the card is so Good that even a Bad signature is all right. The overall card goodness is not nullified.
We hope that this post is good, but if not, please click here to submit your statement that, going forward, you demand good, gooder, or goodest, and nothing else will do.
Seriously,Eric, many thanks.
