Hectic Days

It’s been a whirlwind of a week at Cardboard Icons headquarters. I fretted a good amount about the weather for Opening Day but the rain stay away and we took in a good game in Oakland.

Then lastnight I was lucky enough to see Hamilton the musical in San Francisco. And in a few hours I’ll be off to meet for the first time my girlfriend’s father, who is in town.

And tomorrow starts about six to eight weeks of special training at work, so posts may be a tad more infrequent.

But I’ll part today by showcasing this 2001 Bowman Chrome Ichiro Rookie Card that I picked up a few years back and could not find when I wrote my Ode to Ichiro last week. It’s in my stack that’s been sorta prepped for a BGS shipment. I’m really not sure when I will be sending to BGS — it’s been like 18-24 months since my last submission — but I plan to make a new one at some point.

This card has been reprinted by Topps and even made into a jumbo version that showcased the future Hall of Farmer’s signature. But the original from 2001 was a bear to track down, even though it is neither signed nor serial numbered.
