As a preview of the Waxies, coming December 30th, I am giving away the first award not listed on the ballot, for the worst single card of 2007. It goes to none other than the $400 a pack Sports Kings and it’s base card of legendary pitcher Roger Clemens. The drawing pretty much speaks for the ‘Rocket’s’ entire 2007 season and his decision on coming out of retirement yet again to steal old man Steinbrenner’s money.
Roger – Should I return? Fuck it. Why not?
I am not a Clemens fan but I know that if I paid half of my rent money on a single pack of Sport Kings and pulled something as half-assed as this I would be pretty pissed off at myself for being stupid enough to buy into the Beckett-hyped Sport Kings release.
Back to the Waxies, there will be a very special award and blog badge given to the owner of the best baseball card blog. The nominees are all listed in my blog roll under ‘The Competition’. As much as I would like to give the award to myself, it would be a conflict of interest. Damn!
