Baseball & The Bible

Baseball & The Bible

Last Halloween, MacPherson held a Trunk-or-Treat event in which I was dressed as Moses. When the kids asked me who I was dressed as and I told them, most asked, “Who is Moses?” That alarmed me.

So, here is the deal: If you are between the ages of 10-15, and are willing to listen to me talk about the Bible for 20 minutes, I will let you spend one hour picking out baseball cards from my inventory. My inventory consists of 40,000 baseball cards that are all sorted into alphabetical order. The cards were manufactured from the 1970s all the way up to the present. Some of them are valued up to about $7 each, but most are of minimal value. The opportunity for collectors is priceless. Yes, just like salvation is a free gift from the Lord, the baseball cards are a free gift from me.

I was 10 years old when I began collecting baseball cards, back in 1958. In the 1980s I opened a baseball card shop in Atlanta and did card shows all over the Southeast. During those years I also worked as a freelance photographer and took photos that were used to make Barry Larkin and Todd Worrell’s rookie cards, among others. In the 1990s I worked with Hall-of-Fame pitcher Gaylord Perry and a mail-order catalogue where I was known nationally as “The Cardmaster.” What I’m trying to say is that I just might be able to teach you something about how to collect baseball cards—and something about the Bible, too. Halleluiah!
