Elf Week: Six Inch Ribbon Curls

JediJeff hit me with another of his suggestions for an Elf quote and I happily obliged to fulfill his request.

Today's quote is when Zooey Deschanel's character is arguing with her boss about the way the presents are supposed to look.

"Six Inch Ribbon Curls, Honey" he tells her.
"That's impossible" she defiantly replies.
"SIX .... INCHES...."he says ending the conversation

I was a little nervous trying to think if I could pull this one off when I read his quote suggestion.

Then it hit me.  The 2018 Topps design has a ribbon like look to it on the bottom.

Ok. This might work, but how do I come up with six inches (no stupid comments about this please!)

Wait a minute, I have the gold numbered to 10 copies of the Giants photo variant in a 5x7 format.
Here is the 2018 photo variant, 2018 photo variant autograph/10, and the 2018 5x7 gold variant /10.

Ok I have a larger format card, but...

Welp, measuring from the top of the card in the center we hit the start of the ribbon at

Wait for it...


And I've done it again.  I paired up something in my Andrew McCutchen collection to a random quote from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Elf.


  1. Amazing that the ribbon curl on your jumbo Cutch was exactly at six inches.

    I'd like to know how you store and display such an incredible collection. You must have it all cataloged for easy access to any Cutch card, since someone suggests a quote, title, or theme and you have the card pulled, scanned, and posted the very next day.

    1. I will do a post of how I store my collection next year. Having a photographic memory and an active imagination always helps in connecting 2 random items though.

  2. Great job on the quote and card association. Fun post.

  3. One day to come up with that... I couldn't do it in a week!

  4. Your Cutch collection is impressive... but the way you're able to connect it to different topics is even more impressive.
