I took a vacation day yesterday. I had to work on a computer for church and then needed to go do some Christmas shopping. One of the local card shops I stopped at gave me a great deal. I came away with early Chrome prototype.
No. I'm kidding. Get to know me. It is actually a 1970 Topps Super that has seen better days.

Carl Yastrzemski (card # 29)
The dealer had a stack of them. The former owner of these cards had decided that many of the players needed eye black. So he grabbed a ball point pen and gave it to them. Glue was rampant. The cards were possibly put into some sort of scrapbook or album and then ripped out. Unfortunately I'll never know where Carl played in 1959. Cucamonga? And was he dating Carol and then saw A.L. for nine years? Could that have been Ann Landers? Angela Lansbury?
Oh, and I got a gift for my niece and some things my lovely wife. It is also fun to play Santa for those that you love.
