Isaac received this postcard months ago and I’ve mentioned it a few times on comments on other blogs. The recent cut autograph fiasco reminded me of this Musial autograph card. There are tons of these on eBay for only $20 each, certified. Real? Fake? Machined? Read my brother-in-law’s letter to see why we really don’t care. Its fairly cliché these days to say that baseball and its heroes can bridge gaps between generations and, in this case, kids and their new uncles. However, its amazing how a sport, a local hero, and a simple act of kindness can transform the newest member of our family to a favorite uncle. Isaac was asked to make two Valentines this year with the teacher assuming kids would make one for each parent or maybe grandparent. Isaac made both for his new uncle.
