The one-and-only Night Owl recently sent me a bubble-mailer (thank you!). Does October count as "recently?" I'm going to say yes and show you the goodies in it regardless of my belated response.
This was during the Playoffs, so Free Agency hadn't even begun, but Night Owl kicked off the package with this note:
So I figured, let's make this whole post a music post! Every card I'm showing will get a music video.
I am still slowly working on this subset from 2013 Ginter. The addition of Mercury is like the addition of Freddie Mercury!
Night Owl threw in a good little stack of 1973 Topps Royals, including Mr. "Monty" Montgomery. That's his real name. Perhaps he should have been named "John Michael Montgomery" instead?
Steve Busby threw not just one but two no-hitters for the Royals between 1973-1974. That's why he was immortalized in lyrics by Wham!
"Wake me up before you go-go,
Busby just threw another no-no."
Really. Those are the lyrics. Trust me.
