Why a Garfoose is my profile pic
I am a SuperCollector of Dirk Hayhurst and I have almost all of the easy to find cards. I have the following cards:
2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #32 Dirk Hayhurst
2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #32 Dirk Hayhurst Mini
2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #32 Dirk Hayhurst A+G Back Mini
2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #32 Dirk Hayhurst Glossy #/999
2010 Freedom Cardboard National Promo Dirk Hayhurst #/1500
2010 Freedom Cardboard National Promo Dirk Hayhurst Autograph #/50
2006 Grandstand Lake Elisinore Storm Dirk Hayhurst
2004 Grandstand Fort Wayne Wizards Dirk Hayhurst

I need all other cards listed when you type in "Dirk Hayhurst" in the search bar here on Beckett, as well as the 2010 Freedom Cardboard National Promo Baltimore Skyline #/100. I am waiting for a 2011 Topps Allen and Ginter #32 Dirk Hayhurst Black Bordered Mini. Please let me know if you see anything I need or have anything I need. Thanks!

I was thinking the same thing. I just figured that it was an inside meaning that dealt with Dirk.

It's Hayhurst's Twitter handle.

For his career, he was 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA in 2008-09.

He is on all those 2011 A & G cards dressed up like a Garfoose.

He's an author, too.

Man, I am smart!

No wait, I just Googled everything. LOL

RE: Why a Garfoose is my profile pic
The Garfoose is basically synonomous with him. It is a character he created:
http://dirkhayhurst.com/garfoose/
As a Hayhurst collector, that makes me a Garfoose collector, hence the picture. My current project is his 2011 A+G's, on those he is dressed as a Garfoose, which is another reason. I didn't explain in the main post, because I was using it as a catchy title. Basically, I collect Dirk Hayhurst, thus my profile pic is his character. Sorry for any confusion. After reading it, I realize it didn't make sense based on the title.
showstopper2: Good idea, thanks!

So in essence, I was right. Cool!!
Except, I thought the garfoose was a Dr. Seuss character.

It does sound like a Seuss character. Didn't think about that, but it does.
