1982 Topps #100 Mike Schmidt

No, your eyes do not deceive you. I have not mistakenly posted the same card side by side. The card at left is Mike Schmidt's actual 1982 Topps card and the card at right is an almost exact replica, drawn by me when I was 8.

A few years ago, my Mom found a dozen or so cards I had drawn circa 1982, mounted them on red cardboard and had them framed for me. This is the kind of thing my Mom does regularly. She has never wavered in her support for everything I do, and she has always encouraged me to focus on the things in life that make me happy. Maybe that's part of the reason I never stopped collecting baseball cards.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I couldn't have done it without you!

Thanks, Jim, you've always made me so proud. I couldn't have done it without you either. By the way, how did you do this on Sunday? So clever!
