These are baseball card evaluations that try a collector's soul.
We received an enormous pouch, yes pouch, not mere envelope, of baseball cards from the kindhearted lonestarr, formerly cubby lonestarr. Almost immediately, it became evident that there were dichotomies to contend with, dualities to wrestle, differences to dive into.
For instance, which is the better picture of this 1983 Topps card of Mr. Anderson? The sad-eyed bearded roundfaced fellow, orthe merely mustachioed happy-eyed smile guy?
Who shall be proclaimed 2008 Allen & Ginter chin patch victor--Putz or Helton? Who on this 2009 Topps card has the best dance moves?
Hint: even though the front has a Beltran ghost, the back does not, and is in fact numbered.
