What he Left Behind Just an awesome post for anyone who has been a baseball fan, collected memoribilia (especially baseball cards), and can relate to this storytelling. Just the other day my mother wanted to give away my 1990 Topps Reds set of the World Series team at a silent auction as a throw-in to some club seats. I said emphatically ‘hell no’ and when she balked at my response and asked why I wanted to hang onto those, I didn’t have a reason. I guess for the same reason I want to hang onto my Larry Andersen autographed baseball, mom. [Faith and Fear in Flushing]
