    Please burn the Red Sox tee shirt.

      I’m a big fan of Red Jacket brand t shirts (this reply brought you by Red Jacket brand t shirts), and my “Do Not Wear” list is relatively short: Yankees, Nats (Senators throwbacks are acceptable), Braves (likewise, Boston and Milwaukee are OK), Phillies.

    Doug, your sartorial choices aside, you are a treasure! I hope Brian Joura compensates you well, or at least somewhat so.

      Aw, thanks Norm!

      And wait– you can get paid for writing stuff on the internet?

    Hah! Did you get that from the June Auction? You outbid me! But I got the complete set of Mets organizational sketchbooks and the 1968 Tommie Davis Topps plaque test issue!

      Yes, I did Jim– that’s so funny! I bid on the 1968 Davis disc (another White Whale), but that got out of hand very quickly.

      I’ve seen that Davis plaque checklisted as a Dodgers item in the past, so I’ve never been sure whether to consider it a Mets issue.

      There was too much good stuff in that auction– the Swoboda Stand-Up and 1968 3D, the punchouts, the Seaver comic and pinup, etc.

      Enjoy your winnings!

    We should collaborate and not bid against each other. This way we could more easily divvy up the booty. The current auction is intriguing too.
