So Wild Thing signed some autographs …

Not sure where I stand on Wild Thing these days, but apparently he’s done some autograph signing for us Major League fans to chase.

Will you feel like a winner when you find one? Or are you a bigger winner for going to one of his shows?

I’m not sure if I will. Then again, will he be around much longer? Sad to say it, but …

Clearly that writer over there is obsessed with my team. Check out all of these stories he’s written. True fanboy, but a “journalist,” too. I need to send him a box of shitburgers. (I got some of his cards of my team back in the day.)

April 6 — Obsessed with Pedro Cerrano.

March 1 — Just read it.

Aug. 11, 2009 — Them’s some nice bats.

June 15, 2009 — Ricky Vaughn Bobblehead night.

April 23, 2009 — He can’t find our cards … help him out.

April 11, 2009 — First mention of Ricky bobbleheads.

Dec. 16, 2008 — More on those bats.

I really needed one of these …

The notion of Wild Thing showing up in Major League 4 makes me a little uneasy — but not as uneasy as knowing Lou Brown has little chance as me making a cameo.

You can also forget landing one of these caps, either. They’re no longer made.

But I still want one.

But the notion of the movie happening lives on. Check this out.



What if Upper Deck had gone a different direction with card No. 1 back in 1989?

Now that Upper Deck is effectively out of the market for Major League Baseball cards, it’s also out of the market for Major League baseball cards, too, and that got Lou Brown thinking about what went wrong along the way.

What if Upper Deck had gone with a different Star Rookie in its inaugural 1989 baseball card set instead of Ken Griffey Jr.? What if my man, Wild Thing had been there instead?

Things would have looked a lot different today. I’m telling you.

Exclusive Discovery: The long lost 1990 Upper Deck Major League cards

1990UDparkman2 copy

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s landmark — some might say exclusive (but it’s much, much bigger than that) — find, we have gotten our hands on the cards that were intended to be in the 1990 Upper Deck baseball set.

These feature the stars of Major League II — a few guys you have heard of and, based on the box office attendance, some guys you haven’t.

(We won’t mention that the sequel came in 1994 — Major League II documents my squad’s second pennant-winning season, which is firmly 1989.)
