2013 Card-vent Calendar: December 6

December 6, 2013:
2003 Donruss/Playoff #BRS-1 Babe Ruth Santa

Today is St. Nick's. Did you find any treats in your stocking this morning? Or was it just the usual skidmarked undies hanging lifeless on your bedroom doorknob?

The Babe playing Santa is a complete slam dunk of a concept. The only more perfect match in contemporary sports would be Franck Ribery taking on the role of Knecht Ruprecht, St. Nick's companion in the German variant of the lore. Knecht Ruprecht has been known to beat heathen children with his bag of ashes, or he might give sticks to the parents of naughty children with which they can thrash the ungrateful whelps.
