I know it's late in the day, but as I was out eating dinner with the family tonight, I got the idea that on the 25th of every month, I'll post a Christmas Card (or two) from my collection. Fun, right?!
Let's kick off with a funky pair. You know I like puns when it comes to Christmas Cards, so here's Jingle Belle Rock.
I admit it was weird to go after this Alber Belle card, seeing as he's one of the biggest assholes baseball has ever known. (I posted a short little anecdote of witnessing his assholishness in person when I was young.) But personal failings aside, he put up some awesome numbers in his day. It wasn't too much $. And it's a nice-looking card. So sure, I'll give it a loving home.
And you gotta love Rock Raines, right? If it weren't for being in Rickey's leadoff-man shadow his entire career, I'll bet he'd be in the Hall by now. Hopefully one of these years he'll get in. These Five Star Silver Signature cards are beautiful. (I've also got a similar Molitor card.)
Happy non-Holidays, everybody!
