How I can relate to the Jose Canseco supercollector

Find out the lengths he went to accumulate his collection and eventually getting to meet the one half of the Bash Brothers himself.

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.
