Yankee Mania



OK so I'm on a bit of a Yankees roll right now but it does enable me to dust of some things that haven't seen the light of day for a while. I was doing baseball cards for Topps some years ago and my Derek Jeter card made the cover of Becket Baseball card Monthly. They ran a competition inside the magazine to win the original painting, a competition I entered trying to win the painting back(I didn't win). Good times.

That's too funny. Of course fans would have been furious, crying fix, had you won.

Dang man! I thought that was a photo on the cover. [bowing and backing out of room in reverence to the great Stephen Gardner]

Larry, Topps kept all the paintings and to make matters worse, the Jeter cards they sent me somehow didn't make it. That's life.

Sheila, you are way too kind and I love it.
