Meet Jake Thrower

This card has so many questions left unanswered.

Just who are you, Jake Thrower?

And what exactly are you going to do when you figure it out?

You can't play nine positions at once!

Jake Thrower, you really confuse me.

Shut Up, Billy!!!

I need somebody to bid on this insane maniac because he won't stop laughing at me!

You have to hear him to believe it!

I can't bring myself to end him so somebody else needs to do it.


Shut up, Billy! Shut up!

Catastrophical Generosity

When I commented on this post about how I was admiring his 1976 Topps cards, Cardboard Catastrophes offered me a sizable lot of his starter 1976 cards.

Of course I took him up on it. Getting a bunch of cards from a set I didn't have but a few of was like an early Christmas gift.

Many were actually a little better than starter shape.

He sent a whole bunch of Yankees.

Have a look:


Sunday Sweetness: 2001 Stadium Club Edgar Renteria

I have yet to see an ugly card on which Edgar appears.

This card is a great example of that:


                         In person this card is an absolute beauty.

Old School, Old Style

                                        Maybe Billy was a Budweiser guy?
