How I can relate to the Jose Canseco supercollector

Here’s a cool story of Tanner Jones, the Jose Canseco supercollector.

Give it a read here and find out the lengths he went to accumulate his collection and eventually getting to meet the oneĀ half of the Bash Brothers himself.

When I played ball, that glove was an extension of me. I’ve made some spectacular catches over the course of many seasons from little league to the beer league.

It was a sad day when I had to replace it after catching a routine pop fly when I heard a snap and cracked the bone in my left ring finger. The glove had worn so thin that I essentially caught it was my bare hand.

The memories.

Now I always name my fantasy baseball team after Canseco. I think I should take it one step further and like Tanner, start my own collection of Canseco cards.
