A&G: The perfect antidote
For the first time in a while, I was having trouble coming up with an idea.
I just couldn't think of anything. Maybe it's just that I'm still gushing over the fact that I'm officially on spring break. Not to mention that the Cubs' home opener is a week away.
But for whatever reason, I was drawing a blank. Eventually, I found the cure.
Allen and Ginter.
Tonight, I learned that there is always a blog post to be written about A&G. It's the cure for "writer's block" (if you could even call me a writer).
It doesn't seem like many people enjoy the non-baseball subjects A&G includes in their set each year.
I, however, love them. Call me crazy, but this Jack the Ripper issue is my favorite A&G card, baseball or no baseball.
It's easily the most mysterious card I own. It still gives me chills. You just know something shady is going on.
But its mystery is the reason I love it. I guess that goes for all the A&G cards of this sort. Sure, cards of the "hot dog guy" or the "Pac-Man guy" are odd.
But they certainly beat another A-Rod card any day.
