PAD Circus - 043 - Tribe Card from Mark and Bustin Wax!

Hello, everyone! You'll be happy to know that we had power restored around midnight or so - or that's what I was led to believe since I had been long since catching zzzs by then.

I came home from work to find a very nice greeting card in the mail with two cards stuck inside!

The one on the left is a 1968 Topps Game card of Steve Hargan! I am 99.9% sure that I do not already have this card. This is one I am pretty sure I would remember because it is so unique. It is one of the coolest cards I've seen!  THANK YOU, MARK!!

Included with the Hargan was this 1990 Stars and Stripes Ron Wolfley card. Now, it could have simply been filler, sure. But, you see, our friend Mark A (Sons of Diagoras) usually has some kind of ulterior motive in mind. So, let's see if we can figure this one out.

  • The card is simply filler acting as a reinforcement piece.
  • Wolfley plays for the Cardinals, which used to be in St. Louis, which is not far from where I live (comparatively speaking... It's about 7 hours drive, give or take.
  • It's a Stars and Stripes, which we have busted a lot of the latest incarnation on here lately.
  • Wolfley's last name closely resembles that of the school mascot for the town in which I live. They are the Curley Wolves. 
I placing bets on the last one there. Hopefully, Mark will clue us in!

Again, THANK YOU for the Indians card!! WAHOO!!

Let's rip some wax!

2013 Chipz:
Playmat - Filler - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!!)
Brandon Phillips - Reds - Nachos Grande (Wahoo!!)
Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox - Thoughts & Sox (Wahoo!!)
BJ Upton Gold/Silver? - Braves - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
Gio Gonzalez - Nationals - CaptKirk42 (Wahoo!!)
Nationals Vinyl Sticker - Nationals - CaptKirk42 (Wahoo!! x2, Back-to-Back!!)

I cannot tell if that Upton is gold or silver. The front looks silver but the back looks gold. I will leave that for Jafronius to decide! Congrats to each of you that grabbed a Chipz item from here. Special shout out to CaptKirk42 for getting yet another Nationals combo Chipz! That is crazy!! I'm looking forward to busting some autos or relics!
