1. Grace Kelly
2012 Panini Golden Age Museum Age Material #13
I was only ten years old when the Princess of Monaco passed away back in 1982, so I won't claim to know a lot about her other than what I read on Wikipedia. But last year, I saw this card at an online card shop and was blown away by her beauty.
#2: My Favorite Card
1956 Topps #30
I love baseball cards, but this card is in a league of its own. It truly is a thing of beauty.
#3: Griffey's Swing
When I close my eyes, I can picture Griffey's swing. That's what happens after watching two decades worth of highlights. Unfortunately the vision is slowly becoming fuzzier with age.
It took me almost an hour to dig up a card that actually captured the iconic swing as I want to always remember it, but I finally found it. Damn. That's a fine looking swing.
#4: The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
1961 Topps Sports Cars #43
I've always had a deep appreciation for Volkswagens... especially the Karmann Ghia. But just like Lucy Liu... this card continues to become more beautiful with age.
#5: Listening to Celebration at the Coliseum After an A's Win
1993 Collect-A-Card American Bandstand #99
If they made a movie of my favorite childhood memories, Kool and the Gang's Celebration would definitely be on the soundtrack. This song will forever be associated with an Oakland A's home win and my youth. I get goosebumps every time they play it at the Coliseum.
Okay... it's your turn:
What are some things you find eternally beautiful?
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
