8 Cards of Big Shots
Here is a conversation I can see happening down the road with my son:
Son: Dad, who was the greatest athlete of all while you were growing up?
Me: That’s easy. Michael Jordan. He might be the greatest athlete of all time.
Son: How many cards of him do you have?
Me: Um, none actually.
Son (Looks over my paltry basketball card collection): Was Todd Day better than Michael Jordan? And who’s Oliver Miller?
Me: Well, they were Razorbacks, son, and that’s why I have them. But no, no they were not better.
Son: You have about 30 cards of those guys. But you don’t have one Michael Jordan?
Son: Who was the best football player?
Me: I don’t’ know. Tom Brady was pretty amazing. And he married Giselle.
Me: Never mind.
Son: How many of his cards do you have?
Well, now I at least have a few of both of these guys, although in my defense, their cards can get pricy. However, there are always good deals to be found on the internet, and I finally have some cards of His Airness and Brady. Yes, these are pretty standard cards, but I’m proud of them all the same (and I did get multiples of many of these).
