The box waits patiently, wrapped in cellophane. Inside are treasures yet unknown. The anticipation builds as PAD Circus managers and readers eagerly wait for the posts to start coming...
It. Is. Coming...
Managers also rest on the edge of their seats to find out which categories were awarded to whom in the latest free agent draft. That, too, is coming... (Er, yeah, the commish is a bean-head and forgot to run the draft, so... Hopefully Tuesday evening!)
Faced with an entire hobby box of Allen and Ginter, a pack of 2013 Goodwin Champions leaps forth to be busted open:
Dave Schultz - Hockey - Hockeykazi (Wahoo!!)
Archie Griffin - Football - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!!)
Ernie Banks Mini - Cubs - Sons of Diagoras (Wahoo!!)
Fred Lynn - Red Sox - Thoughts & Sox (Wahoo!!)
Wow!! Congrats, folks! That Banks mini is fantastic! Still one of my greatest moments - eating supper at the table next to Ernie Banks then shaking hands with him afterward as he waited for his car to pull around. I can tell my grand kids I shook hands with one of the best baseball players, and human beings, to have ever played.
