A&G Name Plate Cabinet

I clicked on a perfectly innocent eBay link over at A Cardboard Problem and then my brain exploded.


Here's the eBay link. Right now it's at $316 with 9 days to go. If I don't pay my mortage this month I might be able to win it. Of course then I shall be murdered by my wife, but it would be a happy death. Here's the name plate checklist for reference purposes:

I'm disappointed AJ Pierzynski and Jarrod Saltalamacchia aren't on the list. You could pick out those cards by the box that was three feet long. Just in case everyone is having problems seeing blogger images and it's not just me, here's the complete list of subjects:

Chase Utley
Chipper Jones
Tony Hawk
Joe Mauer
Ryan Braun
David Ortiz

And I'm not stalling on posting my A&G box break, I've been doing almost nothing but work ever since I bought it (ok, and watching Braves and World Cup too - but mostly work) so I'm waaaaaay behind in writing and scanning. Instead of doing it first, I'm going to do it right and postpone the first post until Monday. At least I hope Monday. I've got tickets to the Braves this 4th of July. I hope it doesn't turn out like the 1985 game....

That's almost awesome... if only they'd been able to do it without chopping off the "S".

Have fun at the Braves game Sunday. I'm sure I'll be hearing plenty of recollections of the 1985 game from Keith Hernandez and/or Ron Darling if I happen to catch the Mets broadcast on July 4th. :)

Why no Saltalamacchia?
