- Here is a picture of the goodies I won from the Number 5 Type Collection blog
- Gotta love the old cards. I'm especially excited about the Phoenix Giants cards since I went to a lot of their games when I was young
- People who entered the contest had to make a comment about what his/her favorite team was and what his/her father's favorite team was. My comment is below:
- My father's favorite team is the Giants. After a bit of an odyssey on my part, my favorite team ended up being the Giants as well.
I think my dad rooted/roots for the Giants because they have trained here in Arizona. Their AAA team was the Phoenix Giants for many years.
I started out as a Reds fan. This was the era of the Big Red Machine. I got mad at the Reds for trading Tony Perez and letting Pete Rose go. I switched to the Phillies when Rose went there. The Giants were always my secondary team because of going to so many Phoenix Giants games.
After Pete retired I ended up rooting for the Giants full time. This was the Roger Craig "humm-baby" era. This continued until the Barry Bonds era. I pulled for the Giants for his first few years, but when Arizona got the Diamondbacks I started rooting for them. This was mainly because it was getting much tougher to root for Bonds (grouchiness, roids).
After Bonds left I went back to the Giants and have been there ever since.
- Thanks for the cards!!!!!
