I almost missed it

Thanks to a number of you bloggers who know more about cards than I'll ever know, I look at cards closer than I used to and I see things I used to miss.

Take this 2001 American Pie Thurman Munson I posted a few days ago.

I usually look at my posts once they hit the blogwaves to see if I need to correct some grammar or take out an extra word. I did need to edit this post, but while I was looking at it, I noticed something I hadn't noticed before.

Munson is in position with glove raised as if to receive the pitch. But look, he already has the ball! I don't know what Munson's caught stealing percentage was, but it probably helped to already have a ball ready to throw out would be base stealers!

It's still weird to see Munson without the mustache. I hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. I was counting fingers. I thought that he might have had six.
