I was putting some cards away in a binder tonight and I came across this card I had stashed away. Its not everyday you get to see a baseball glove on Steroids but here it is. It is a 1986 Fleer Mickey Hatcher #396. Just because I feel like the glove looks doesn’t mean I was injected by my personal trainer. No, sometime late last week I was inadvertently infected with the cold virus. By the time I woke up this past Saturday my head has felt like Mickey’s glove, bigger than the rest of me.
I wish the back of this card told us a thing or two about the giant glove Hatcher is wearing but instead it tells us in 1984 he was a “Fine” clutch hitter. Maybe Blake over at Twins Cards can tell us about the glove. Anyway, its about time for another round of medicine. I can’t wait to get my glove, I mean head reduced back to its normal size. Hey Mickey, do you have the matching hat, it would probably fit me right now.
