As a blogger named beardy, I absolutely LOVE that Topps included 2008 Full Beard & Mustache champion Burke Kenny in this year's Allen & Ginter's set. I love it so much in fact, that I am going to try and attempt to collect EVERY Kenny variation in this year's release. Believe it or not, through 4 boxes of Ginter, I wasn't even lucky enough to pull his base card. So I truly will be starting from scratch. Too bad Topps didn't use a picture like the one above for his card. It would have looked a little better than just a dude with a huge beard in his sweats, and would really showcases what all that facial hair can do.
Here's the rundown of Kenny cards I am searching for:
1. #61 Base card: ALREADY EN-ROUTE FROM Ryan's Memorabilia, BUT MORE COPIES NEEDED
2. #61 Mini card
3. #61 Mini A&G back
4. #61 Mini black framed
5. Mini no number back: WON ON EBAY LAST NIGHT!
6. #61 Mini Bazooka back: TRADE IN THE WORKS WITH RYAN OF Card Cache
7. #AGR-BK Burke Kenny beard hair relic
8. #AGA-BK Burke Kenny autograph: WON ON EBAY 5 MINUTES AGO!
If you were fortunate enough to pull any of the cards listed or shown above, please contact me about a trade. I am dead serious about trying to complete The Burke Kenny Octo-fecta. If I were really crazy, I'd add the red ink auto to this list. It would be nice to own, but I'm not made of money, and it's not like he's a Hall of Famer or anything.... at least not a baseball Hall of Famer.
Seriously, drop me an email or leave a comment if you have any of these cards for trade. I mean it!
Oh, and one more thing, make sure your sound is turned up, and CLICK THE LINK!
