Pop Quiz

Where is Panama?
Little does he know the earth is actually banana-shaped

If you said, "Ummmm...Central America?", you are incorrect. If you said, "Panama, officially the Republic of Panama is the southernmost country of Central America. Situated on the isthmus connecting North and South America, it is bordered by Costa Rica to the west, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. 8.7515° N, 79.8772° W, and has an transcontinental canal across it," You are correct! You are also a cheater-try not to use Wikipedia next time!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

If you said neither, but instead, "What on earth does this have to do with the blog supposedly about baseball cards that I am reading?", fear not.

Hint: It has to do with this card.

You guessed it! Despite the fact that this card scanned fuzzily, Juan Berenguer is himself from Aguadulce, Panama! Again, why should you care? Because this and some other fine Braves cards were recently sent to me per a request to BA Benny, or Mike, of BA Benny's Baseball Card Buffet.

Some more?

Football cards? Yes! These were the original sources of the swap between Mike and me. Besides finding some neat 90's FB cards, I had a feeling Mike would have some Bravos as well, and he did!

Ah, Mark Grant. You can tell someone didn't work out before Spring Training! :-)

I really like these Gold Parallel cards. Apparently the home team in this game had some attendance issues, though.

Bruce Benedict has a little bit of a unibrow going here, I see. Ha.

Is it just me or does it look like a big ol' spider is crawling up Chambliss's back? By the way, check out the back of the card:
I got a card of Carroll Christopher Chambliss from BA Benny's Baseball Card Buffet!!!

Last card!
You know that feeling, as a team collector, when you get a card from a base set that you didn't have yet? That's a good feeling, isn't it?

Thanks to BA Benny for the cards-hope you enjoyed the Mets I sent you as well!!!
