Just Another Manic Mailday

Okay, not really manic. Three pieces of mail. And one of them was from yesterday's mail, I just didn't get around to posting it.

Anyway, enough babbling. I received back a TTM, and it's a beauty:

Rangers Hall of Famer and knuckleball extraordinaire, Charlie Hough! This is a 1991 Topps, which I actually happen to love. I can't tell you why I'm such a fan of that year's design, but I am.

The next two cards are for my Jordan Zimmermann PC, and they are both from 2013 Triple Threads:

UAJR-JZ5, Gold parallel numbered 10 of 25, and:

UAJR-JZ1, Emerald parallel numbered 11 of 50.

I know that some people think the Triple Threads parallels are a gimmick, and I can certainly understand the logic of that. But I admit I love 'em. I love everything about them. As a matter of fact, there is only one thing I would change - I would make it a strictly on-card autograph.

Anyway, that's it for this post. Everyone have a good weekend and be safe out there!


  1. Last night I had a dream that Charlie Hough wanted to manage a softball team I was in charge of. It was between him and a friend of mine. It was a tough choice.. My friend was very excited for the chance, but Charlie definitely had the experience edge.
    Thank you for posting about him today to give me a chance to share this random tidbit no one could possibly care about. lol

    1. That might be the most awesome comment/story anyone has ever shared on my blog! Bahahahahaha

    2. Ha, glad to hear it! I ended up naming Charlie the manager and my friend a coach.. but he wasn't thrilled to be passed over for the top spot.
