I am so sick and tired of wearing a mask in public.
It feels like a lifetime ago that I could go food shopping without a mask. It feels even longer that I could go to a clothing store, shop at the mall, visit my local card/comic shop, or even get excited about gathering in a large group like a concert or sporting event.
I had plans for going to Disney, seeing a couple home openers, going to a MCR reunion concert, and so many other things this year before everything went into a complete world lockdown.
I am getting anxious and want to have some fun again.
Something that I used to do on a fairly regularly basis was go see a movie at the local theatre.
I was thinking about this the other day because of the Austin Barnes card I posted with the Cutch cameo. The reason I thought about that card and the movies is because I became aware of that card existing while I was waiting for The Joker to start. I was in the theatre with only maybe a handful of other people and was passing time reading other blogs. Once learning of the card, I immediately hit eBay looking for the pink parallel so I could squeeze it in for last year's SAVESECONDBASE event.
I recently found the mini version pink parallel from BrentandBecca and will show that off for this year's event, but will always associate that cameo card with the movie, The Joker.
As an origin story of the clown prince of crime, it was spectacular. I loved the movie, but think it is kind of cool that I can always associate that card to the movie.
There are a few other baseball cards that I can remember exactly where I was when I won it or pulled the card.
When I see those cards I instantly have memories of events that went along with the card.
Let's put a smile on that face.
Do you ever think about a specific baseball card ties into something you did?
