A Collector's Superstition

As you are well aware, today is Friday the 13th, and many people have superstitions for all kinds of things that they may encounter in life.

Baseball players may be the worst!  Above, famed superstition extraordinaire Turk Wendell used to eat black licorice and also  brush his teeth before each inning that he pitched.

There was good article on by Tim Kurkjian on the wacky superstitions for ballplayers.  You know --- chewing bubble gum, walking or not on the foul lines, various articles of attire, pre-game meals, rituals, etc.

The Hot Corner pre-game meal was two hot dogs with regular bread that served as buns and a Pepsi.

There are also some pretty superstitious collectors out there.

Do you grab the first pack?

Do you feel up the packs searching for hits?


Keep it Hot on the Corner, pat.
