Doon't you know it's President's Day?

I’m sure there will be lots of pictures of presidents and presidents on baseball cards today, being President’s Day and all. I am going to feature Napkin Doon instead, because if there were a Napkin Doon Fan Club, I’d probably be President. Or Sargent at Arms or something.

Anyways, Randy over at The Adventures of Napkin Doon sent me an awesome package recently. The headline card was a 2011 Bowman Sterling Any Dalton relic. Love the orange jersey piece! This marks my second Dalton jersey card, which is pretty cool since I don’t actively collect football. But adding a RC relic of rising QB and the signal caller from my favorite team? Yes, please! The future is bright in Cincy.

Nap also sent a few Tinos and assorted Yanks. I love the Banuelos Bowman Chrome RC’s. He’ll be happy to know that I’ve already sent one of them out for an autograph, except Banuelos generally doesn’t seem to sign anymore so I'm not expecting any return. There was also a Michael Pineda Bowman Chrome. He’s going to be a damn fine pitcher, you know.

Last, and certainly not least, a three-pack of Gerber relics…err, burp cloths for young Joey. As Nap knows, you can never have enough burp cloths, and I enjoy using these ones more than our other ones because they have baseballs on them. Makes me feel manlier.

Nap, great stuff as always. Really appreciate the gifts.


  1. He should've sent you diapers, but he's hoarding them all for himself isn't he?

  2. OK, wait a second. I've seen him referred to as "Scott" and "Randy" in two different trade posts.

  3. Glad you liked the package. I've found that diapers make good penny sleeves for graded cards, so yes I'm hoarding them.
