Fun day at the mailbox!! Congrats, Ed, I know you were hoping for him, and now here he is! Great hits, my gosh, 3 set hits in one envelope is a great day, especially with someone you were thinking might be a write-off!
levi, ya I have learned, over three years, that he WILL sign via Spring. A little patience will serve you well though. Get your envelope ready now so you don't forget, you only have nine mos. I may send again next spring even though I'm done with set hits for him, I'm just a such a fan. Anyone else remember when he blasted 2 home runs on opening day. 1989? I think.
No worries, I was a young boy growing up in Chicago in 1988 living with my Grandparents in those days, and I remember that well, and I also remember wishing that he played for the Cubs, and in 1991 I got my wish! I have to say, the 1988 team was MUCH better than the 1991 team, George was a definite bright spot for the Cubs in the early 90s.
Cardinals fan by marriage and locality now, a much better team to cheer for!
