Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s this:
Topps’ Allen & Ginter “Oddity” line currently carries 25 Daniel Nava cards, which include actual strands of Nava’s playoff beard (his was a little more clean-cut compared to the likes of Dustin Pedroia, Jonny Gomes and Mike Napoli). One of the cards is already on eBay and the latest bid — there are 20 bid so far — is at $162.50 and rising.
How great would it be if Nava didn’t really use beard clippings for this?
What’s that? Oh, yeah, there was a game last night and the Sox had a rare 2014 walk-off win thanks to Brock Holt. Play the kids.
Adios, AJ, won’t miss you even a little.
