Mikey.... I Likes It

For those of us a little up there in age you might remember the old Life cereal commercial about the kid who won't eat anything. The two boys talking about how Mikey won't eat it, he hates everything. Then little Mikey got the cereal, and started going to town on the stuff. I believe the idea for the commercial was to persuade kids that Life cereal was good, and we should try it. While it's been so long, I can't even remember if it worked on me. What I do remember is that it served its purpose in even now I remember the commercial. What does cereal have to do with baseball cards you ask?

I just completed a trade with another Mike. This Mike comes from the online trading group TradingBases. While I don't know if he likes Life cereal what I do know is he loves to trade. Looking through the cards I noticed a trend. The entire thing laid out like a trip to the ballpark starting with the Authentix.

So once inside I decided it was time to find out about our line-up, and how we were looking.

Deciding it would be fun to take a short trip around the stadium I noticed something off in the distance. Moving in closer it was none other than every kids favorite ballpark fun. Mascots!!

With all the adventure out of the way it was time to take in the game itself.

All I have to say is thank you so much Mike for taking me out to the ballgame card style.

  1. Where I grew up, the hot rumor was that Mikey died when his stomach exploded after he ate Pop Rocks and soda at the same time. :-)
