Here is Mr. Kekich, in keeping with the spirit of today's post on the other blog.
The tattered version, with the torn top edge, came out of some sort of magazine. I wish I remembered what magazine or exactly how the card was featured. I think it was two cards together printed on something that looked like a magazine subscription card, which you tore out of the magazine.
The cardboard is the same as any other baseball card. But the tearing out of the magazine would explain the shredded top of the card. It has bothered me all these years. So, I am happy that I could upgrade it.
Sadly, I don't have any fascinating story for the upgraded card. And that's why I almost always keep the older card -- because that older card tells a better story than the newer card.
And that's my story about swapping cards of a guy who swapped wives.
Except, unlike Kekich, I kept both cards.
I wouldn't recommend keeping both wives.
Or even swapping wives.
Uh ... I'm in dangerous territory.
I'll stop now.
