2012 Card-vent Calendar: December 10

December 10, 2012:
1986-87 Fleer #38 Mike Gminski
Whenever I flip through a massive box of random cards at a show, my naughty bits get a little tingly whenever I spy a card from this set. There's always that glimmering hope that, being from baseball's junk wax era and all, an insignificant little rookie card of some kid from North Carolina might pop up. It never does, of course, and all you're left with is Mike Gminski's beard.
It's a nice beard, though, the likes of which is rare in the modern NBA. Sure, James Harden sets the standard, but the closest we get to a full white guy beard is Pau Gasol's Backyard Barbecue Scraggle-Fest. Not cutting it at all.
