Wearing The Late Crown (Part 2)

It seems like I'm never "up to date" when it comes to popular culture.

I've never gone to a movie on the opening night.

I've never bought a book the first day it was available.

I do not embrace new technology unless I am forced to.

I have never camped out or waited in line overnight for anything.

As a matter of fact, the only thing I can remember making a conscious effort to acquire on the day it was released involved going to Strawberries Records and Tapes at midnight to get Guns and Roses "Use Your Illusion I and II". On cassette of course.

So it makes perfect sense after everybody else in the world has already posted about 2013 Gypsy Queen, that it is now time for me to do it.

I finally found a place selling single packs, and bought just one among other necessities. I didn't realize this until I got home, but I was only charged 99 cents for it, so it already was a good pack.

So here's some scans of cards I just got, but you probably had weeks ago.

47 - Freddie Freeman

 261 - Vance Worley

321 - Robinson Cano

NH - BF - No - Hitters Bob Feller

200 - Ernie Banks mini

32 - Darin Ruf

So now that I'm "up to date" in one aspect of my life, I'm going to listen to some record albums.

The Longines Symphonette Society Presents "I Remember Radio..." in fact.

Happy Record Store Day.

  1. I remember being infinitely sad when music shops like The Wall and Sam Goody stopped carrying cassette albums. And depression really set in when those stores disappeared altogether. It sucks getting old!

    By the way, don't feel so bad, I haven't bought a pack of the GQ stuff ever!
