Here is a photo of what will probably be the last snowmobile ride for this year. It was in the 50's here today and the kids played out without mittens.
The picture of Cameron and card is the now famous 2007 Topps Derek Jeter card #40 with President Bush and Mickey Mantle added to the photo. This was in no way an error card. I don't care what Topps claims. There is no mistake that they have probably tripled card sales from this point last year. This was carefully planned by the company to create a buzz. It was a great marketing tool and it is working well for them. Card is still selling around $25-$40 on Ebay. If you really want one wait two years and buy it for a $1. I bought some packs at Target today and got two of these cards, so how rare is it? Anybody want one for $25?
Paul, Cyndy, and Tim passed the checkpoint at 8:00pm. They were not in the lead.
