A Little Mojo - Mojo Mondays?
Perhaps I should start a new, regular feature called "Mojo Mondays" around here. Or, maybe not. Who knows. All I know is that I thought I'd throw in something a bit more current than I have been, and why not start with some autos and game-used?
I thought "Pack Wars" was a great idea. Then again, I also liked "Cop Rock," so what does that say about me? In any case, having a CC sig and a Boone sig is worth a few notes to sing about. Add to that a Pronk patch, a CC clipping, and an On-My-Goodness Omar PRIME patch card and we are heading for full-on choral outbreak. Okay, okay, enough singing references. The Omar patch is pretty sweet though, if I do say so myself.
And then, how about some lumber signed by Blyleven! Yeah, I know, I find it weird that they had him sign a piece of wood. I mean, a ball, sure. But, wood? As in a bat? What you may not know is that over the course of his 22 years in the Bigs, he had a .131 overall batting average. Wait... Okay, okay, he had a .144 on-base percentage. Er, uh, umm... Okay, well, he had a .146 slugging percentage. Okay, why did he sign a bat? I have no idea. Now, Mr. Carter, on the other hand deserves to have his bats in cards! Sweet. I also like the Team Trios card featuring a bat and two swatches. The layout is simple, but effective.
Now, you may be asking yourself, "What about that Doby card? How does that fit into this page?" I was asking myself the same thing. All I can say is that if you're looking for "mojo," Doby's not a bad place to look.
