This next one comes from Antelope Jeff. I'm calling him that because his name is Jeff and the return address was in Antelope, CA. Pretty cool name, if you ask me. Jeff forgot his SASE, which could be expected from a rookie. I'm reading the book Paper Lion right now, by George Plimpton. In this book, Plimpton convinces the Detroit Lions to let him live the life of a rookie at their summer training camp. One chapter deals with rookie hazing, which back then didn't get much worse than being told to stand on one's chair in the cafeteria and sing one's school fight song. So Jeff, get up on that chair.

A nice stack of 1988 Topps
I may regret asking people to send me these, but for now I like it.

That hair fluffing out from either side looks like something I would not want to have brushed across my mouth (closed or open). GUND Stuffed Animals, however, might want some of that for their "naturals" line.
Vuke's curls and pock marks just make me queasy.
I have literally never heard of this guy. I must have already had his '82 Topps card, since I have the whole set, but his name escaped memory. Keeton got into exactly 22 Major League Baseball games in his career, which spanned 1980-1981. He has exactly three officially licensed cards, from the three major brands in 1982. That's it. There appear to be a few peripherals worth chasing if you want to be a Rickey Keeton Supercollector. I'll allow someone else to roll that rock up the hill, though.
And finally, what's the DVD connection? I'm pretty happy with this one, but it's still not too hard to figure out. Remember, there's a contest going on all TMA long.
