Here's hoping the "Eskimo Women" cornered Albert Operti near a glacier and allowed him live his final hours on an ice floe.

Get to know the players on your cards - you never know what you'll learn.

I couldn't agree more as well. When I began collecting again, early last year, I was on a mission just to collect as many 52 Topps as I could.
When Frank on here listed/PM'd me about some of his cards, he mentioned he would like to keep his Waitkus card due to what was written on the back about the "Crazed girl"
I told him I had never heard/read that story so I Googled it and read the back of the card. Needless to say, despite Frank's wishes, I purchased the card as I also thought that would be a great card to own. I now try and read every card back I receive, and am still going through the ones I already own.

With my collecting slowing down somewhat, I am now spending more time organizing, reading and researching the players on my cards, which has lead me to read some pretty great stories!

Or sometimes you can find recipes for dinner.

Hi Taylor - That card came to my mind as well. Just couldn't bring myself to post it, so I stuck with the Eskimo Woman!

Cheers,
Patrick

Default Highjacked by Eskimo women

I see my thread has been hijacked by Eskimo women ! Nevertheless, great comments and am glad we are having fun with our hobby.
