Tom from Waiting Til Next Year wrote that he was going to the Cubs game at Wrigley on April 17. Even better, it turned out to be the MLB debut of Kris Bryant. I emailed Tom and asked if he'd be willing to pick up a scorecard for me. I thought it would be cool to have Bryant's debut card in my collection. Tom's a great guy (and a fellow teacher, too!) and he replied that he'd be happy to hook me up.
And he did!
But I'm not. One per year is good enough for me.
One very disappointing thing, though.
Those days are long gone and I wonder how many of these the Cubs sell each game. You don't see very many people keeping score any more. Why bother when you can get up-to-the second information on your smart phone.
Will the day come when teams no longer sell scorecards?
