I must have slept funky a couple nights ago because I woke up with my neck and chest all tight and sore. Then a day later, I also started having some abdominal discomfort in addition to my sternum situation, and I was like, "oh shit: pancreatic cancer, here we go." But thankfully, it seems to be getting better. I think I just held in a pee too long and irritated my kidneys. But I'm no doctor. What I'm getting at is I took a day off work today to get myself right. It also happened to be the day a very special card was due to arrive in the mail, and while that wasn't the catalyst for the unplanned PTO.. ain't gonna lie, it was among the several factors.
My pup Annie joined me waiting for the mail carrier, our hearts filled with longing. When? When? When?!!
Finally at 4:45 PST, the sound of beeps from a tracking number being scanned graced my doorstep.
2005 Topps Retired Tony Gwynn refractor auto!
Oh man, I love this card!
Number 05/25. Check out all them batting titles!
Had to take it outside for a photoshoot in the fresh air on this pleasant late September day.
I'm obsessed with Topps Retired refractors, and Tony Gwynn is my alltimefavoriteplayer, so this card is a grand slam for me.
This might be one of my favorite photos ever! Tony in the foreground and Annie chasing a squirrel in the background. LOL. Beautiful.
