In all honesty, there hasn't been too much going on. A trade night, a tarantula and a trip to the library.
I'll admit, I'm not pulling this photo out of the wallet to shoot just anything and everything. But I am aware that a handful of tweets/posts per week is warranted.
And....I'm having fun with it. I know I picked the right card.
When I initially chose this 1976 Topps Oscar Gamble card, it was because it had a bit of sentimental value to it. Plus, it's just one heck of a sweet photo. But I've discovered in just the couple short weeks I have been participating in #WalletCard, Oscar Gamble and his 'fro have more of a following and admiration than I anticipated.
I decided to do some searching up on Gamble and stumbled across this fantastic video done up by author and journalist Dan Epstein. It's a must watch.
"The copious circumference of his coiffure." ???!!! Writing does not get any better than that.
I immediately became a Dan Epstein fan.
I did a little more digging and learned he has written a couple baseball books. I tracked one down at the library today.
I wholeheartedly agree.
I thought his 'fro on the front of my card was crazy cool. That photo on the cover of the book is legendary.
I did a little quick flipping (to the pictures of course) and look what I found.
I think Oscar might enjoy playing the part of bookmark for this one. Or does that create some sort of "conflict of interest"? This #WalletCard thing is so complex. :)
Be sure to keep up to date with the latest and greatest from Oscar Gamble...#WalletCard. You can follow him on Twitter by clicking on the '76 Topps card at the top right of my blog.
Keep having fun!
