Thinking about how to announce my hopeful beating of the worst part of this cold. I thought why not run with the old reliable 'It Still Hurts To Watch'.
If a person was to ask me what my favorite style of card for the pre-collision card I'd have to say ones like the card above. There is something awesome about that close-up shot of the catcher without his mask on. That opportunity to look into the eyes of the catcher as a runner is bearing down on him. Nothing is cooler that seeing that look if you ask me.
I thought a while back I bought a few of these cards with classic collisions, but this is the only one I can locate. You won't hear any complaints here though as this if you ask me is the perfect card to use as the first classic collision card. You can never go wrong with Jackie as your first collision.
This card sums up the way I have been feeling more than anything. I feel like I got hit hard, and the guy was still laying on me adding to my pain.Hopefully my pain will end, and I can start getting a few more posts up fairly soon.
In all of this there was some good news. While taking it easy I spent tons of time in the hobby room, and got some serious organizing done. The baseball cards are looking better than they have for years. If I can just get over the last little hurdle life ill be so much easier with the cards. I did get that hurdle started though so that is something.
