O Napkin Doon, O Napkin Doon! Wherefore art thou Napkin Doon?
Remember Napkin Doon? Of course you do. He only hung up his blogging boots a little over a month ago. It’s been a dark month, but the blog world keeps spinning.
Napkin sent me a package in his last days, and I’m just getting around to showing it now. But the goods are worth the wait. Nap has been a devout eTopps fan. He put a lot of time and effort into his portfolio of cards, only for Topps to neglect the concept and stop maintaining the site. Nap, sensing his cards may be gone forever, took delivery of his cards before they were gone forever.
He was nice enough to snag three cards for me – Michael Pineda, Manny Banuelos, and a 2005 Yankees team card highlighted by Randolph Johnson. The Pineda is a great addition to my PC…one of those annoying cards that would have been difficult to pick up.
Nap also threw in so Mo’s. I seriously need to get these cards framed.
Last but not least, some unopened junk wax that I’m going to save for my son to open one day.
Thanks, Nap. We miss you, buddy.
