Jimmy Wilson: A Special Catchers Finding Jesus

You may have already seen this card over at Troll's blog, posted here. And before we continue, this is the SAME card. It was sent over by Troll in the package I posted about yesterday.
Troll's post is pretty authoritative on Mr. Wilson, so I'll pretty much stick to the finding Jesus aspects. Wilson's glove isn't up so he's not chasing a pop up or even participating in any action. He's just taken his mask off and, looking toward the heavens has this quizzical look on his face like angels are descending or he's watching a UFO break through the clouds. Given the focus of the series, my vote is for Jesus on a chariot drawn by lions through the sky, or at the very least those bears that Elisha had eat those kids. It says a lot about my upbringing that I still have nightmares about animals who maul children for simple things like jeering an authority figure.

Anyway, Mr. Wilson isn't dealing with any of that. His savior is coming down in a celestial vision, and if we were all so lucky, just once, the world would be a much different place. Or, at any rate, one in which we use threats of bear maulings to get children to behave.

Thanks again Troll, this card is amazing!

Have a good one everybody and goodnight Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!
