Sure the heart of my collection is focused on sports cards. But for the past thirty-something years, I've collected a variety of other things ranging from video games to action figures to comic books to LP's. Trust me... I know I have issues.
Thankfully I have learned to control my urges... and for the most part, I've stopped buying ever good deal I stumble across at the flea market, card shows, and on eBay.
However... every now and then, I relapse and buy something completely random and not necessarily a necessity.
Introducing my collection of Leave it to Beaver baseballs:
Take a few seconds to laugh it out. Need more time? Okay. Are you finished? Now you're just being hurtful. I know this isn't your ordinary collectible.
But that's exactly why I bid on this eBay auction when I stumbled across it. Even though the show ended its run nine years before I was born, I watched the show religiously during my childhood through syndication. Heck... I've even started watching the whole series over again on Netflix.
Unfortunately the autographs are slowly disappearing due to the ink and ball selection. They were signed in the mid 90's for a Leave it to Beaver Fan Club member on cheap, pleather balls. The good news is that I paid less than $6 per ball (shipped), so it isn't like I broke the bank.
The balls are proudly displayed in my office next to my original Rubik's Cube and Taco Bell chihuahua plush.
Anyone else have Beaver Fever?
C'mon guys. Keep the comments rated PG. There might be kids reading this blog.
Happy Hump Day and sayonara!
