Waiting Til Next Year for the Red Sox

While Boston has been toiling in last place this year, it is important to remember that they just won the World Series last year.  It is not so bad to be a Red Sox fan.  The Cubs on the other hand...

Which brings me to my post.  I received a surprise package from P-Town Tom of Waiting 'til Next Year.
First of all, the note.  I love it, especially the mention of how much of a player Wendell Rijo looks like.  And yes I will give the oblong card a good home.

1.  1993 Upper Deck BAT Tri-Folder Joe Wood/Tris Speaker.  I am somewhat familiar with these cards.  I have one for Cecil Cooper in my Red Sox collection.  These cards were released in a joint effort by the Baseball Assistance Team (BAT) which was a program developed to help former Major League players adapt to life in the real world, deal with drug problems, and a variety of other issues.  This card features two huge stars from the 1912 World Championship team.

2.  2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects Wendell Rijo.  Unfortunately I had this one already, but I wanted to show off the entire package.

Thanks Tom!  I owe you some Cubs.

  1. Well, one for two isn't bad. Glad you didn't have the BAT card!
