Contest: What is Mike Fetters writing?

Check out today's card post right here. Mike Fetters appears to be writing something. Post a comment below saying what you think he's writing, and what he's writing it on. I'll pick the few best entries and make a poll to decide the winner. I'm going for humor.

YOUR PRIZE if you win is an unopened bonus pack from a 2009 Series 2 Topps blaster containing one of those baseball legend historical commemorative patch cards.

UPDATE: Yeah I am an idiot. It's a 2009 pack, not 2008 (corrected above.)


  1. on the glove: "This is my glove, there are many like it, but this one is mine! Without my glove I am useless, without my glove it is useless!"

  2. Dear 1972 Mike:

    Things are going good now that you're 8. You've got a cool little glove here. Hang in there, even though things might get tough and you might get tempted to quit baseball for girls. You're going to make it as a big leaguer and have a long career, so don't let the girls distract you (except for Jenny Griggs in 1984...she'll be worth it).

    Best wishes

    1990 Mike

  3. 1. Put glove on hand (will only fit on one of the two, if you can't remember which hand it fits, try both).

    2. Thrown ball with hand that does not have glove on it.

    3. Repeat #2 until the other guys with shirts like yours leave the grassy part and sit down on that big long chair in the that little house past the dirt part.

  4. To Do List:

    1) pick up dry cleaning
    2) write thank you letter to Vincent Ludwig for the lovely watch he gave me
    3) grocery store - A quart of milk, a loaf of bread, and a stick of butter
    4) hit up DeWayne for a loan - that guy's loaded

  5. It's a 2009 pack, not 2008. Me not so smart with numbers sometimes.

  6. Dear little kid,
    Hang on to this glove. When I'm in the Hall of Fame it could pay for your kid's college education. Your friend and future Cooperstown resident,
    Michael Lee Fetters

  7. Dear photographer,
    Sorry for stepping on your nuts.
    Mike Fetters

  8. On apiece of paper:

    Dear Mr. Autry,

    Somebody from Disney stopped by the ballpark looking for you. I told him I would give you the message. I also had an idea about changing our name from the California Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Let me know what you think.

    Mike F.

  9. Mick-no, no...Mikee? No, that ain't it either. Mike Fetttt...t? Oh man, I can't remember...and Gary DiSarcina wanted me to help him with his name next. Man, I'm screwed...
    (and to dayf, thank you for all the Naked Gun refrences)

  10. On glove:

    "Eat shit kid.
    Mike Fetters"

  11. "...I have writer's block."

    Lame, yes.

  12. On lineup card:

    "1B Ben Dover"

  13. Dear Diary,

    I have a new best friend, his name is Devo. That is short for Devon White. He is such an Angel - that's it... a movie! Angels in the outfield. Must pitch movie idea to Disney tomorrow. Secondly must pitch tomorrow.
    Remember Mike, I deserve good things, I am entitled to my share of happiness. I refuse to beat myself up. I am an attractive person. I am fun to be with. I am Mike Fetters.

  14. I'm sorry old buddy, that guy offered me 2 hot dogs and a cold brew. You've been traded...

  15. "Best of luck, Mike
    Dave Winfield"

    There, that should pay for my kid's college.
