Mickey Mickey Bo-Bickey, Tanana-fana fo fickey...

Here's a fun pickup I just received from eBay after unsuccessfully trying to trade for it multiple times from an unnamed blogger who started trade talks with me multiple times and then never returned my messages:

Mickey Tettleton-Frank Tanana 2006 Topps Co-Signers dual auto


Well, Lawrence from Office Space, if you had a million dollars, what would you ask for on your Topps card?
You just bought another box of Topps?  Watch your cornhole, bud...
"Besides two Tigers at the same time?"

I'm pretty excited about this one because Tanana was a very good pitcher for the Tigers for a long time, and Tettleton is easily one of my favorite Tigers of all time because of this,
one of the greatest batting stances ever, with an enormous wad of chew half the size of his head sticking out of his cheek.  That and he had a ton of power for a catcher, averaging 32 homers from '91-'93.  And did I mention that his nickname was "Fruit Loops" (which he claimed were the source of his power)?  There will never be another Mickey Tettleton, though his son Tyler is a college QB for Ohio (the actual Ohio, not the Redneck State Buckeyes).

Anyway, this is a very cool card and a fun addition to my Tigers PC!

    1. Well, Tim, you know I'M A GODDAMNED PEOPLE PERSON! I DEAL WITH THE CUSTOMERS! And Ohio deserves it, the backwards, redneck, sibling-marrying truck-drivers that they are (present company excluded).
