There were not a lot of entries but I will take quality over quantity. I had fun reading the revenge plots of others and I hope everyone else did too. Everybody who entered is a winner and prize packs with a miggy card and some PC stuff will go out soon to each one of you. Thank you! Your humor helped me through the difficult Tigerfest hangover I was in. Brett Alan, find my email address under my contact me link and email me an address for you.
Matt from Diamond Jesters got me thinking with his glitter bomb idea. Whilst writing a handful of Spring Training TTM letters I decided my revenge will be sending all the littered edges from all my other letters to Miggy. I know from experience it will never get to him anyway. Someone in some office will open it and have the edges of all my paper littered all around their work space. They will have to send me the dreaded donation request letter in return. Thus, forcing the Tigers to pay people to waste time returning fan mail. Also, the custodial crew will have an awful time trying to clean up the mess costing even more man hour money. All this extra money dished out to deal with my litter stuffed envelope will cause the Tigers to raise ticket prices. The team as a product being as bad as it already is and having already raised prices will lose attendance, drastically. The city of Detroit will turn its back on the team as tickets become too expensive and fans would rather go watch the new thriving Pistons down the road with new superstar Blake Griffin. The organization will eventually have to relocate to Las Vegas and win the 2024 World Series and become a Dynasty for a decade. Detroit teams will suddenly start to leave one by one until the city once again is returned to its post-apocalyptic, dark comic book-esque, villain filled cesspool environment....So maybe I won't do that.
USPS Detroit: HELP WANTEDI have posted a bunch of places about the local USPS distribution centers having a horrible time getting mail to recipients as of late. Rumor has it they are 4 days behind on sorting and can't catch up for lack of help. I read this online, it may or may not be true. Anyway, I finally received the package I had been waiting on for weeks that bounced around and fell off the face of the Earth for a while. I am too poor to go chase and actual rainbow of a card but someday when I do I would not want to be missing any pieces I could have gotten cheap in the meantime. I found this cool little piece on Ebay and the price was too good to pass up. I know most rainbows of a card are just numbered's and color variations but I thought this would complete the rainbow well someday.

2018 Topps, Where you at?
That leads me to the multiple facebook card group posts I have seen lately from last year's bandwagon Judge/Bellinger card flippers complaining that they aren't getting their money back when buying 2018. "Last year I could buy 3 blasters, sell the RC's and buy a bunch more when it came out. What happened?" Two monster rookies and Topps don't mix. I have a very strong feeling this is the end of the current collecting era and we are due for a hobby ice age mirroring the Junk Era. It empowers us to have a high population in the hobby but an ignorant population is never a good thing. Solidarity people.
