  1. NFL, Topps.. Where did they get a Magic theme?

    From the 1951 Topps Magic football card set which featured 75 of the countries top collegiate players.

    Hoping to go around down town St. Louis tonight to scope for HOFers but we will see if that actually happens.

  5. My Dad, a ball, some snow, and Joe Torre
