Our greatest accomplishment though was our major strides in baseball knowledge. I had the Pirates game on tv and she just blurted out "foul ball" right as it happened. #prouddadmoment. She also will keep telling me how she wants to go to more Black Bears games. I think my wife is starting to feel threatened and booked us all tickets to the Nutcracker around Xmas. I told her by that time I'll have her referencing sabermetrics. This time next year she may be doing guest posts on BWTP!
How about a card ...
2004 Topps Original Signature Edition Bill Madlock Auto 7/11
I think this is the lowest numbered Topps Originals card I have in my collection. Each player in the set has a handful of different cards of which many are hand numbered. I need to clean this case some as the guy who previously owned this got a little sticker happy.
Madlock autos are always fun additions as they are cheap and always have a great look. I think I've only paid more than $10 once or twice and that was for 1/1's. As a whole the late 70's Pirates are great value buys. Tekulve is in this set as well, but he is a little tougher to find. Likely this is due to him being a cardboard god.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. This is a transition week in Morgantown. The first WVU football is game is next weekend which unofficially begins fall in my area. Should be a good time.
Thanks for reading.
