Billy Ripken, 1992 Topps Gold Winner #752
"Winner*", this card declares. I certainly don't feel like a winner tonight. I've been forced to stay home from work for nine days and counting by the government shutdown, assured that I'll receive back pay as soon as I return to work...with no return to work in sight. And now I've come down with a wicked cold, so anything productive that I could be doing with this unplanned time off takes a back seat to lying around on the couch in a wheezy, congested torpor. It's not been a great week. Billy Ripken, why have you forsaken me?
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.
