First up are two 2019 Topps base cards that represent the two wildcard teams I'll be cheering for tomorrow and Wednesday:
2019 Topps #64
2019 Topps #654
Laureano and the Oakland Athletics shouldn't be a surprise if you're familiar with this blog. As for the Washington Nationals, I don't have an allegiance to them. However... Kurt Suzuki is still my favorite player in the game, so I'll be rooting for him.
Next up is this 1989 minor league card featuring Sal Maglie Stadium:
1989 Pucko Niagara Falls #29
You're looking at Night Owl's rookie card. Back in May, he featured this card on his blog and explained that he's the guy sitting in the press box (fourth window from the right) talking to the radio broadcaster from the other team. My original thought was I needed a copy of this card, so I could send it to him and get it signed.
Well... I forgot. Then a few weeks ago, Gavin showed off his autographed copy and it motivated me to purchase this card (actually, I ended up buying a team set on eBay). I've already emailed Greg to see if he'd be willing to sign my copy. He is. Now I just need to get off my butt and ship it across the country.
Last up for today is my school identification card for the 2019-20 school year:
If it looks altered... that's because it is. Even though I've told a few of you the name of the school I teach at and you could probably find me fairly easily online... I prefer to have some privacy. That's why I've painted over my full name as well as my school's name and mascot.
And normally I don't post too many photos of myself... but this one is one for the ages. So enjoy.
What about you...
Are you giving any wildcard teams your support? If so, who?
Okay that's it for today. Time to get ready for work. Happy Monday and sayonara!
