Adam Jones, 2013 Panini Triple Play #7
I was picking up some necessaries at Target when a rack pack of 2013 Triple Play jumped into my hand. Naturally, I bought it. I can't get enough of these goofy pop-art caricatures, and buying a non-MLB licensed card product makes me feel like I'm sticking it to The Man. The crab-and-bird-and-sailboat backdrop is just the icing on the cake. I'd like to think that posting this bobbleheadish Adam Jones avatar will spur him to lead the O's to a skid-snapping victory tonight, but I may just have to accept that I have no control over the things that happen on the baseball diamond.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
