This is what a normal night consists of if I attempt to anything blog related while my daughter is awake. The only reason I mention this is that everyone's favorite Griffey collector TJ is a proud new papa. Having a kid makes you the ultimate multi tasker. Before you know it you will be singing Old MacDonald, scanning Griffey's and pulling Play Doh out of his mouth!
Right before TJ became a Dad he sent out an actual ton of cards. I was one of the lucky recipients. It was two team bags stuffed to the gills.
It really looked like the Pirates had found their solution long term at catcher. So much so the Pirates were trying Ryan Doumit at different positions to keep his bat in the lineup. As usual with the Pirates during this time period it all went to shit pretty quickly. Paulino's defense went to hell and his bat wasn't enough to keep him in the lineup.
I love Pacific so much. Crown Royale was probably the most Pacificy of them all. Late 90's cards are hard to beat. Could you imagine the design meeting on this card. "Hey guys I'm thinking we put an actual crown on the card." The manager instantly says "love it" and drops some acid.
I love receiving high end base in trades. Polanco is fresh off a long term extension and has been the hottest Pirate out of the gate.
Here is the beginning of the Slyking...
Holy crap that was a lot of Slyke's. The crazy thing is their were multiples of many of these.
In terms of outfit this is probably more on the conservative side for New Orleans.
Thanks for the great cards TJ. I hope you are getting on a nice routine with the little one. Hope you are still finding a little time for cardboard.
Thanks for reading.
