A sad day for my collection...

Lately, the card selection at my local Walmart has been really slim. Many of you might remember me saying that they never got any 2009s in when the rest of the stores got them. I went to Walmart yesterday to see if they got any in yet.

They don't have any cards any more.

NONE.

The place they were in is now filled with "As Seen On TV" crap.

All-Billy Team

Kevin over at Orioles Cards put together an All-Kevin team. As good as that team is, I don't think it has a chance against my All-Billy Team.

Starters:
C - Bill Dickey (10x All-Star, HOF)
1B - Bill Skowron (6x All-Star)
2B - Bill Mazeroski (7x All-Star, HOF)
SS - Bill Russell (3x All-Star)
3B - Bill Madlock (ROY, 3x All-Star)
RF - Bill Robinson
CF - Bill Virdon (ROY)
LF - Billy Williams (ROY, 6x All-Star, HOF)
DH - Bill Hall

Bench:
C - Bill Freehan (11x All-Star)
IF - Billy Martin (1x All-Star)
IF - Bill Spiers
IF - Bill Almon
OF - Bill Buckner (1x All-Star)
OF - Billy Hatcher

Pitchers:
SP - Bill Singer (2x All-Star)
SP - Bill Swift
SP - Bill Lee (1x All-Star)
SP - Bill Krueger
SP - Bill Wegman
RP - Bill Caudill (1x All-Star)
RP - Bill Campbell (1x All-Star)
RP - Bill Dawley (1x All-Star)
RP - Billy Koch
CL - Billy Wagner (6x All-Star)

The pitching staff and bench are a little iffy, but I think they'd more than hold their own against any other All-Name team.

Sweet Redemption

There STILL aren't any 2009s at my local Walmart. I wanted to bust some wax, though, so I bought a box of 2008 Topps Heritage High Number. I think I chose wisely.

Still Open For Business

I really need to get my butt in gear and start posting more on here. While I think of my next post, here's some football insanity I found recently.



Makes me laugh every time I watch it.
