I bought two 'jumbo' packs of 2016 Archives, paid too much for them and picked up a couple of mildly interesting cards. But that's a subject that'll I discuss in another post.
What we have here is an eBay purchase. That's Robert Wuhl, my long time friend and college roommate at The University of Houston on his '16 Archive subset card. The subset consists of seven cards including one of screenwriter/director (and one-time Orioles farmhand) Ron Shelton.
Robert played pitching coach Larry Hockett as seen here drinking a beer, something Robert has never done (or admitted to) in real life.
The card back alludes to the 'candlesticks' quote that occurs during a mound meeting with catcher Crash Davis played by Kevin Costner and pitcher Nuke Laloosh, played by Tim Robbins;
(quoted at IMDb)
Larry: [Larry jogs out to the mound to break up a players' conference] Excuse me, but what the hell's going on out here?
Crash Davis: Well, Nuke's scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man's here. We need a live... is it a live rooster?
Crash Davis: . We need a live rooster to take the curse off Jose's glove and nobody seems to know what to get Millie or Jimmy for their wedding present.
[to the players]
Crash Davis: Is that about right?
[the players nod]
Crash Davis: We're dealing with a lot of shit.
Larry: Okay, well, uh... candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern. Okay, let's get two! Go get 'em.
