Things have been quiet for the past week here on the blog. As I've mentioned before, my wife and I are expecting our third child this month. As of right now, she's set to be induced on the January 23rd (a week from today!). We'll see how that works out, but things have still been busy around the house, hence the lull in posts.
In getting ready for the new baby, we've done some in-depth cleaning, and I finally found the card you see above. Before I had a certified auto of Jerry Coleman, I figured I'd have to settle for this IP auto I picked up on eBay. Coleman's 1979 TCMA card is a pretty cool one in my book, with a little sepia tone of a much younger (even at the time) Jerry during his Yankee days. The blue autograph looks pretty sharp as well.
I lost it a few months ago, only a few days after I got it in the mail. Turns out my wife put it (along with a few other things I was missing) in my bedside table, which I pretty much never use.
I also finally got the red parallel of Chris Denorfia's 2014 Topps card. That leaves me with a pink one to track down to get a page full of Denorfia cards. Norf just signed with the Cubs, so here's hoping that there's some more cards of his to collect in 2015.
If anyone has a lead on that elusive pink card, lemme know.
Just a quick post today, but I'll leave you with a #WalletCard update, this one taken from a trip to Petco with the kids while mom was at a doctor's appointment. Always enjoy taking my kids to "the cheap zoo", and the fish are the focal point of any trip there, but the turtles were pretty interesting for them as well.
