SHow many words does it take to get to the end of a Black Shoe Diaries, nay, an SSSSSSBBBBBBB Nation post? This is just a smattering of the incredible memorabilia that Frau Pentimental scooped up for me for my 50th last September. I wanted to share some of it sooner, but, there was a ripple in the vortex of Success With Honor a short time after last September.

To further whet your appetites, I offer you a pic of my son with a certain semi-famous baseball player. 10,000 BSD bucks to the first Nittanite that can identify whom it is and how many baseballs he signed for a lucky kid who still is not certain of the import and gravitas of that day.

The black and white Nike backyard ball was fortunately not signed that day, I just fished it out of a rain gutter tonight. Somehow this pic must qualify as a COA, no?
