I Now Own the Greatest Cheese Board Ever

I've been the fortunate recipient of some very unique and memorable gifts since I started blogging. A recent gift from Peter from Baseball Every Night may take the cake.....or cheese....



That is a customized Bob Walk cheese cutting board.  It might as well be covered in diamonds with the Walk card being built into it.  If they bring back the show Cribs and I happen to be on it, you bet your ass I'm showing this off first.  Nothing says opulence like a Bob Walk cheese cutting board.  It will only be used when I acquire the rarest cheeses in the world.  Maybe I'll have my pal Kevin send me some French cheese, but that may not be rare enough.  It would have to be cheese from a one eyed pygmy goat made by monks. Get on that Kevin.

Now that I own this work of art, I wonder what else I can throw a Walk card in to make it better. Maybe all my formal dinnerware should showcase the greatest athlete of all time. I feel like I'm on to something here. I'm going to call a patent attorney...go about your business. I thought of it first, or I guess second. Thanks Peter!



Thanks for reading.

  1. My Ron Santo cheese cutting plates are among my most treasured bits of baseball ephemera. Walk looks just as good - Pete rocks!

  2. Didn't you know it's extremely rude to flaunt your wealth like that? Tacky, dude, tacky.

  7. It's one thing to own a cheese cutting board. But yours? Damn. That's straight up baller status.

  9. Thanks guys! Glad, Matt, that you like it so much. I did three test cards. This was a limited 1/1 Bob Walk test for Tony Burbs' prizing winning Ron Santo cheeseboard this spring. (It's like the Han-Solo-being-frozen-in-carbonite-in-preparation-for-Luke test of custom cheese boards). I did a 1/1 test of Darryl Strawberry, and another limited 1/1 test of another player, but haven't sent that out to its intended recipient yet.

    If anyone wants to have a custom one made please do contact Treasures of the Vine. (Full disclosure: they are my aunt- and uncle-in-law)
