She is very concerned that when I pass she will be left with thousands of dollars worth of cardboard that she won't know what to do with. Every time I show her a pricey card and tell her what it's value is, she lets me know what else I could have for that amount of money. My Mantle card would pay off the truck. My Mays card would pay for a tropical vacation. My Bonds game-used would get us a new tv. My Pujols rookie would fill the oil tanks. My Clemente rookie would replace the sofa and my Koufax rookie would cover the property taxes. Not fun discussions.

My wife has mentioned several times that when I die, the cards will be in the trash. Which is going to make some rubbish collector a very wealthy man. Many of my friends have mentioned they would take the cards when I die, nice guys. Let me know if your wives are any different then mine, or maybe they are the perfect wife and are into collecting cards with you. Just wondering out loud...........
