Happy Sunday! I'm jazzed this morning because I watched the Rolling Stones' concert last night, broadcast live from N.J. The highlights for me were ex-Stones guitarist, Mick Taylor joining in for a scorching version of 'Midnight Rambler', and a super-impressive Lady Gaga joining Mick on 'Gimme Shelter'. I'm not a lady Gaga fan - I can't even name one song of hers - but dang, she turned it up to 11 on that number. Bravo, Gaga.
On to baseball cards and Part 2. When I first started posting this edition of B.P.Heroes, I named it with my heart, rather than reality. As the post has continued on, I have come to realize I have far fewer true RC's than I originally thought.
This blogging about our hobby certainly allows us to view our collections deeper in depth, and to get a clearer perspective of what we really have. So, I'm altering the name of the post to Rookie Cards (Not). LoL. Bear with me, and let's have some fun anyways.
First up is the Kid's second year fleer card...

Sure, baseball action shots are great on cards, but another huge part of the game is that pre-game prep period. The players are warming up on the field and getting into a game mindset, but there is also a laid back, aint it grand to get paid for playing a game, kind of feeling as well. Some guys are stretching alone, others are running side by side sprints, and others are joking while waiting for a turn in the cage. That easy lull before the contest is a type of feeling that only baseball seems to capture.
Because he is who he is, Molitor also gets his third-year card in this binder page...
