It was a box bottom card from 1989 Fleer. I thought that I picked it up in my Black Friday shopping spree at COMC. I knew that I hadn't put the cards in the binder yet, so I started looking for the padded envelope that they came in.
I looked around the computer. Nope. In the stack of stuff by my bed. No. Ah, it must be in that pile of envelopes out in the sun room. Nope, but I did find the packing slip. On the bookshelf? No. Other bookshelf. No. Crud.
I slept on it and this morning, being a snow day for Caroline and knowing that after spending some time doing a jigsaw puzzle, cleaning the kitchen, catching up on some correspondence, putting a few loads of laundry in the washer, I'd set out to find the cards. I looked in one more stack of stuff and bingo, bango, bongo, I found it.

This is one of those oddball cards. I'm guessing that they're plentiful in the Chicago area, but I don't live there anymore. Ah, Chicago, where I could, and did, go to a card show every month. There hasn't been a card show in east Tennessee in years.

On to Del Harris. Del kicked around the NBA as a coach for some time. He went to the same college my wife did. Milligan. So did Francis Gary Powers. But they don't make cards of Francis.

Boy, howdy. Doesn't this look like an ad for some sort of hearing aid or fiber supplement?

So thanks, Greg, for spurring me into action. I almost wrote, "You can saddle me up and spur me all night." But I didn't. That would be wrong.
