Package from Joe - Part 3

Here's the third part of the package from Joe. This is the coolest thing, so I saved it for last, but part two needs a photograph since the item is not scannable and I don't have time for that now so I'll save that for later. There's logic there somewhere, trust me.

Ok, so I was going to watch an episode or two of The Venture Brothers last night, but I got waylaid by all the new Allen & Ginter auctions on eBay. While I was looking through the new stuff I started checking out the DVD cover art. The Series Three art is incredible, they made the whole package look like an Atari 2600 game cartridge box. Series Two has a nifty noirish comic book art feel to it. I opened up the case and this fell out.



No words.

I know what a certain subset of cynical people out there are thinking... You're looking at it all askew because it's not certified and there's no sticker on it and and acronym or two didn't give it a stamp of approval and it's not cut up and plastered in a cut auto card. Well phooey on you cynical people.

I don't know if it's real, I don't care if it's real. because as far as I'm concerned...


(see comments)

I have to do something really special with this now. I mean, the man is like my spiritual guru.

It's real. He signed 3 of them for me after Hurricane Katrina. But alas, no Certificate of Authenticity. Plus he is just a scrub compared to THE JOHNNY BENCH. He would only have won 9 World Series rings without DiMaggio, Mantle, Ford, Rizzuto and Stengle.
Glad you liked the surprise.

It's way better without any stinky old certificate. It's verified by a fellow collector, and that's excellent. Fantastic!
