The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #47

2010 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects #BDPP43 Tyler Waldron Purple Refractor

Tyler currently plays for the Class A West Virginia Power. The Power used to be a Brewers affiliate, but they are now a farm team for the Pirates. This makes what could have been a great card just a purple pile of crap.

To cleanse that bad taste out of our mouths, let me count down the Top 5 Things That Are Purple:
5. Grape Crush - Put that shitty store-brand soda back on the shelf and grab a Crush. Nothin' beats it.
4. "Purple Haze" - I really haven't listened to a Hendrix CD in a long time, need to remedy that.
3. Mountain's Majesty - Did you have your hand over your heart when you read that? If not, you hate America.
2. Real Madrid's Third Jersey - Ummm, kind of a weak entry, but all other teams that field 11 players at a time and wear purple suck balls.
1. The Count - Wears a well-lined cape, helps children know their numbers. Excellent!

You forgot the blue and yellow purple pills. Eminem would be greatly dissappointed.

Hey my Rockies look awesome on those purple refractors.

Plus they should be #2 (can't put them ahead of the Count though).

I probably would have included Grimace in the list, but if you're only including one character, I can understand how the Count wins out. I'm more a Grover man, myself.
