Is this the night the Stanley Cup is won?
In honour of this big hockey day, I’ve decided to mention a small baseball story.
The bread man stopped in where I work to say hello and drop off some bread and he told me what had happened to his father. His dad was renovating an empty house, and while in the attic working on something, found a huge binder filled with mint baseball cards from the 1940’s and ’50’s.
“It’s a huge binder, really big,” said the bread man as he looked around to find a similar size to show the comparison. “And they’re all mint!”
He also wanted to know what to do about finding out the cards’ value and I told him there are books and even eBay to check out.
I think he and his father have no idea just yet what a treasure they have on their hands. But probably very soon they’ll be jumping for joy.
I wonder if there’s a Mickey Mantle rookie card in there.
