Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.

I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)

Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well.

This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

Where's Palmeiro ?

a) not in the Hall of Fame
b) the bottom of my card box
c) in line for more "juice"
d) in front of congress still saying "Never. Ever. Period."
e) still wishing to be at Mississippi State
f) you fill in the blank ___________________

Ok so this might be an unpopular post but Palmeiro did spend three "pure" years in a Chicago Cub uniform and I came across these two cards the other night.
I do remember getting these autographs while he was in Chicago. He did start his major league career as a Cub, hit 25 HR's, drove in 95 in three seasons and was a "pure" All Star in 1988.
His career took him to Texas and Baltimore and back and forth twice. Too much controversy surrounds his career and I will end by saying . . . "never, ever period" . . . he is going back to the bottom of my card box.


  1. My friends and I always wonder how much different his career would have been. Perhaps Mark Grace would have been the better player?

  2. He's asking Canseco how to get into celebrity boxing.

  3. On paper, his career is greater than most players that debuted in the 1980's. I don't care for how he may have done it, but I am impressed but what he was able to do!!
