A surprise consolation prize

 During the ALDS I was having fun with Chris the Collectors' "predictions" about the Yankees, pretending that Chris, a Red Sox fan, could use his powers to help the Yankees. Of course, the Yankees ended up losing the series, but I was surprised by an envelope from Chris this weekend, with a note apologizing for "jinxing" the Yankees. Inside were these three great cards. Two reminders of the 1996 World Champions (25th anniversary next year! Where did the time go?), and a 1967 Topps need, of one of the far-too-many baseball legends we lost recently.

Like Chris I am rooting for the Astros tonight. In my case it is so the Yankees won't be the only team to have ever blown a 3-0 series lead. Right now that doesn't look too like, 3-0 Rays in the 6th inning. Looks a lot like game 5 of the ALDS, in fact. Chris, I'll send some Red Sox your way soon. Thanks!


  1. Much appreciated, Bo. I guess I jinxed the Astros, too ha ha :D

  2. I was so stressed over this series. Thank the baseball gods the Rays found a way to send the Astros home.
