The Napoli Conundrum
I got this piece today - a 2013 Gypsy Queen Mike Napoli Framed Mini Relic. I'm more than excited about this piece, but also bummed about it. I love the Texas Rangers, and I have never placed a player above the team. When they leave or they are traded, I understand that it is a business and I wish that player well (unless the player is CJ Wilson or Josh Hamilton). But when Napoli signed with Boston, I was crushed. He epitomized everything that the Rangers are: a hard worker, gave 110% effort, loved the team and the city, loved the fans, played hard - in other words, he was a gamer.
So, this card is a keeper- nothing could convince me to let it slip away. Apologies for my emotional gushing!
