1988 Topps Mini Leaders #71 Willie McGee

I loved Willie McGee as a player. He was fast and could hit and field like an all-star. What I loved most about him though was that his facial expression always looked as if he smelled something really, really bad. Loved this guy.

How about old school Dennis the Menace?

I have no idea when this is from, it's just old. Mid 1970s probably, 76-77 is my guess.

Dave Matthews Band Crash

Here's the thank you and credits page and some art from the booklet that came with Dave Matthews Crash. Loved this album!! Carter Beauford is the best drummer on the planet, and as much as Dave's vibe has become a pop culture joke, he wrote (and still writes) amazing songs.

Yankees Lineup, September 30 1978

I think this was in the game day program you got at the park. My brother in law is a big deal and likes the Yankees a lot so maybe it's something he got for us, but anyway here's a real piece of ephemera- a typed sheet with the Yankees and Cleveland Indians line-ups. This was the epic stretch where the Red Sox choked and then battled back to force a one game playoff against the Yankees which was decided by a home run by Bucky F. Dent.

For the record, I stayed home from school to watch that playoff game. My older brother got home just as the game was getting to the later innings, right before Dent came up. He literally said "Bucky's gonna crank one." Not sure if I was more mad or amazed, and the rest is history.

The names on this are amazing- Mickey Rivers, Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson, Craig Nettles, Roy White, Chris Chambliss.

The Pleasure is Back. Barclay cigarettes

This is a full page ad from the 1981 Seattle Mariners home game program. Barclay! My step-father smoked these for a long time. The filter wasn't round but the paper around the filter was, so there were chutes of airspace that you dragged hot and unpleasant smoke from. I was not a fan, and neither was he, they were "low tar." A few years later he said screw it and went to Camel filtered.

1988 Topps Mini Leaders #72 Ozzie Smith

Ozzie Smith, The Wizard, really was an amazing baseball player to watch. You may not ever see a better shortstop than Ozzie Smith in his prime.
