Toy man.

Today's card is number 9 in the 2008 Allen and Ginter set. I like the A&G cards in person but they scan something terrible.

Chose this card today to recognize Ian Kinsler earning the Texas Rangers Jim Sundberg Community Achievement Award yesterday. According to the Ranger's site, he was given the award because of his work with and for Toys for Tots. The award is about the highest recognition the Rangers can give a player for off-field actions and is appropriately named after one of the nicest guys to ever don Rangers duds.

Congratulations to Ian and his wife for their involvement with Toys for Tots. Hearing positive things about players counts as one of the highlights for me in my collecting endeavours.

Great choice today Spiff! I much prefer to read news about players giving of their time and energy to worthy endeavors versus getting into a bar brawl or shooting themselves in a night club.
