Turning The Page On Ian...

Now I understand why some people are depressed during the Holidays.  When major tragedy strikes a person this time of year, it stays with you and and weighs heavy on your heart.  I hope we can all find the strength and courage to get through the next few months knowing Ian Kinsler will not be in a Rangers uniform next year. 

I think we should remember the good times with Ian.  And the good cards.  So I picked some of my favorite pages from my Kinsler album.  You should know tears are dropping on my keyboard as I type this:

Here's his Topps base card run.  2005 to 2013.  9 Years.  9 Cards.  1 Page.  1 Awesome dude.  Thank you for making this a clean break Ian and not running over to another page.  I assume his 2014 card will be some horrific Photoshop job of him in a Tiger uniform.  Sure, I'll put it in my Kinsler album.  But I won't like it.

My 2010 Triple Threads page.  It's got (2) 1/1s.  I need one more Sepia in the upper corner. 

Why did this have to happen to me?

Some of my favorite relics and autos.  I have more.  I don't have the strength or will power to scan any more tonight.

I guess you should live life to the fullest but whatever because life will wind up beating you down in the end and trade your favorite player anyway so who cares right?

I hate it when teams trade my favorite players. Stay strong and hope Prince brings a good couple years with him.
