The Cardboard Junkie has to do a mock up of that Joe Namath/Suzy Kolber card. I would by that card.

By the way the card from A&G I really didn't want to get, I got. Jack the Ripper.

I'll trade it for the Namath/Kolber and a player to be named later.

It's simply a crime that Tuffy doesn't get a card every year!
