I had a very eventful Christmas. The thing is that as a family we usually celebrate in January since the rest of the family is busy and we also celebrate my mom's birthday at the same time. It works out much better. With that being done for a few years now, I don't get many gifts on Christmas, but I do get a couple. I also got a nice surprise last night too.
So anyways actual gifts, my best friend stopped by and brought me three gifts. So tonight I thought I would show them off and to thank him. Let's take a look.
Next was the biggest package. I opened it because I saved the smallest for last because I assumed it was a card. The biggest package was a nice surprise and really cool.
While I was happy to get it, I didn't really notice the autographs on it at first. He pointed out the names were included on a sheet inside, but I figured out two of them without looking.
This last piece though as I said I assumed was a baseball card, and it was. Not just any card though.
HOLY CRAP IT'S AUTOGRAPHED! I never really told anyone, but I've wanted his autograph for the last few years, but figured since he has passed and not a lot of cards, I didn't think it would be a realistic goal. Buck meant so much to the Negro Leagues and to Kansas City that I've always admired him. Whenever I see something about him I read or watch it. One of my favorite moments when I looked at all the stuff inside the Royals Hall of Fame at the Stadium was the bust of Buck O'Neil. This will be proudly displayed for everyone to see.
Thanks again to my friend and I need to find something cool for him. In the meantime, the best I can do is promote his Facebook page- Talkin' Truman. He has amazing on field photos from Mizzou games, and you should check it out.
That wraps it up for tonight, now as I finish watching Monday Night Raw, I'll work on a few more posts to close out the year. What was planned to be a short post might have to be multiple posts, but I need to work on it. Thanks for reading and have a great night.
