So, Sewing Machine Guy is who bipped me with all those Goudey CCs that I customized and, er, then passed along to others. The truth is, the group break was also his idea, and as a group join it kicks ass to be doing it.
Well, apparently he went to a show and came across this:
He picked it up and we hammered out a trade for it. It's slightly dinged and I have yet to figure out how to open those new fangled Sweet Spot cases (hence the tape in the scan), but this card is awesome and I REALLY appreciate SMG picking it up and sending it my way. I'm now just a bat barrel short of a having three versions of CC Sweet Spot autos (ball, glove, bat barrel).
One things I don't get: the stadium in the card looks to be Wrigley Field at sunset. I've got nothing against Wrigley (it's amazing; thanks again Daddy D!) or sunsets (on the one hand they are overrated, on the other without the sun we'd all be dead), but CC plays in a dome. Moreover the stands are full, never happens at the Trop. AND, if that is Wrigley, it looks like the sunset is actually fallout from a nuclear winter. How else could you explain the absence of the famous rooftops behind the OF stands? Just strikes me as weird.
Have a good one everybody and good night Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!
