Welcome to my blog. I want the Josh Willingham cards. All of them.

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I return. Opportunity 4 is awarded. Opportunity 5 is available.

Good day to all!  Didn't intend to have an extended absence but I have started a new job and time is at a premium right now.  I did want to drop in and award opportunity four of my clearinghouse sweepstakes!  No scans today as my camera is out on loan.  Just congratulations to the winner of the randomizer.......

Sam of Dimwit fame!  He joins Josh D, Jafronius, & Backstop Cards in the field of 21.

Who will join them at the winners table?  Opportunity five is up for grabs.

What do you know about Gary Redus?  Leave a comment and you're in!

Good Luck

  7. I know now more about Redus from reading previous comments than anything I knew prior. For instance, he is most likely not related to Norman Reedus.

  15. With very little effort, you could sing Gary Redus' name in place of Alan Brady's, and it would sound pretty frigging awesome:

  24. Congrats on the new job! Is it at the Gary Redus Baseball Academy in Decatur, AL? That academy is all I know about what he is up to nowadays, don't know if that's full-time employment for him or if he's doing anything else.

    1. Lol. No I wish Bo! I think Gary mostly works with rising High Schoolers and helps out with a Little League in Decatur. I believe he was scouting a little but not sure if he still does.

  25. His last name sounds like "rebus" which is a word-play puzzle.

  28. I know that redus played for the reds, pirates, and rangers and maybe some other teams as well. His name also transforms into sugary red which I believe is what Marge schott called him.

  29. I know that he is on my "shortlist" of players I look for when I go to shows and he's rarely an easy find.
