White Trash

Plain White Envelope + Junior Junkie = White Junk = White Trash.

Ok, that's a pitiful stretch of logic there for a title, but whatever. You're gonna have to deal with it.

Also, it wasn't even a PWE. It was a bubble mailer. But I already typed the title in. Man, I'm bad at this.

Among the stacks of some 2014 goodness that will have to be paid forward were these three niceties.

2002 Upper Deck 40-Man Looming Large Jerseys #LSC Sean Casey /250. I'll gladly accept any relic card of The Mayor. Now, why would Upper Deck slice the player's face right down the middle? Unsettling.

2014 Topps Archives Gold #166 David Holmberg /199. My second gold from this set (Chapman). Holmberg is definitely improving lately. Hopefully next year he'll figure out this big-league pitching thing.

2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Mini Lady Luck Back #165 Pete Browning. Browning played in the 1800's, mostly for Louisville in the American Association, but spent two years with the Reds in 1891-1892. So this definitely counts. Well done, Junkie. Browning has a lifetime .341 batting average and is regarded as one of the better overlooked players for the Hall of Fame. As far as the back...

...it's one of dem special ones. Smoke them cigs, kiddies.

Thanks, Junior. Go Reds.
