Confessions Of A Sports Junkie is having a Carlton Fisk Card Countdown. This is such a great idea! Why didn't I think of that first? Oh well, I'm glad someone has.
The countdown begins with number 72 and will continue once a day until it reaches all the way to number 1. Brilliant! I couldn't be happier with this prospect. I, for one, can't wait to see what pops up from day to day.
I'll offer my image commemorating the Carlton Fisk Card Countdown. A 1986 Fleer Box Bottom card of Fisk. It's one that I don't have and never see on eBay. It shows that even with indigestion, Fisk still finishes the game. Depending on when the photo was taken, he could've been blocking Joel Skinner or Marc Hill from getting into the game.
This is the same man who caught 25 innings in a game in 1984. So, his hunger to be in the game is strong. This is why he is a Hall of Famer. Enjoy the countdown. I know I will.
