In a positive sense though, I could use the word "doozy" to describe the card I'm posting today in an attempt to get me out of my blogging funk. Been sitting on this one for over six months now, it's time for this card to have its day
Al Demaree I posted earlier this year for worst condition of the cards I do have from this set. You really can't be a stickler on condition when it comes to cards this old; it's difficult enough finding these regardless of what kind of shape they're in. Hell, there's only one of these Carrigan cards available on eBay right now, and while it's in better shape it's going for way more than I paid for this one.
Carrigan is actually a local New England guy, having been born in Maine. This is the second pretty significant card of his that I've landed this year, as his 1909 Philadelphia Caramel was one of my big finds at the large card show I made it to back in April. As a Red Sox fan, how can you not like a guy who played his entire MLB career with Boston, and was nicknamed "Rough"?!?!
That's all for today, hopefully my schedule frees up and my motivation increases so that I can start getting through the half dozen trade packages I have sitting on my desk waiting to be processed...
