Creatures of Myth, Legend & Horror/Joy is probably my favorite insert set from all of Allen & Ginter. I was very happy to snag one considering that they are pretty tough to find. I got The Three Little Pigs, which is more of a fairy tale than a myth, but whatever. Let's take a look at the front.
On the Three Little Pigs card. Four. As in three plus one. Or two squared. One hundred seventy nine thousand eight hundred and seventy-five minus one hundred seventy nine thousand eight hundred and seventy-one. Otherwise known as one pig too many if you're talking about the three little pigs. I have been laughing at this for well over an hour. I'm not sure I've enjoyed any card more all year.
Granted, 99% of all Topps non-sports historical subjects use images ganked directly off of Wikipedia so it's probably a famous drawing of the Three Little Pigs and Mama Boar from 1892. Even so, Topps just knew that one of us crazy OCD bloggers would pull this card, see four pigs on the three little pigs card and have to post it immediately. Topps is just trolling us now and I, for one, welcome our new card-screwing-up-on-purpose overlords. Oh please oh please let there be a Pigs relic card out there with bacon bits in the window.
Well played Topps, well played.
