It’s Your Loss, Allen and Ginter
Even though the 2012 Allen & Ginter checklist has been known for a while now, I come to you today still in stunned disbelief that my campaign to get George Will on an Allen and Ginter card did not bear fruit. I spent a whole 20 minutes creating a little “George Will for Allen & Ginter” campaign sign, posting it on my blog, sending a few of my business cards out to other bloggers with said sign on the back, creating a “George Will For Allen and Ginter” Facebook page (ahem- which only 1 person liked) and then taking a step back to watch the magic happen. And…. Nothing. If I’m not going to be rewarded for this kind of effort, then I truly am afraid of where this country is heading. Thanks a lot, Obamacare.
I should take my damn ball and go home, but dammit, getting Mr. Will a baseball card just means too damn much to me, dammit.
I don't know, maybe Topps got wind of this:
and realized they couldn't top it.
Between getting this from dayf and my gen-u-wine autograph from Mr. Will,
my project had some high points.
I’m going to collect my thoughts, decide on a new campaign strategy, and come out on fire.
George Will for Allen and Ginter 2013 is coming soon. With special sauce.
