Well, it was a big disappointment to hear that the MLB season was set back two weeks or more. It's always a real pleasure to follow a Yankees game in the evening, and I'll miss doing that. Especially so in summer break, when school is out for me and I sometimes have a hard time finding things to do.
I'm also concerned about my little league season, which is at present delayed, and may be cancelled. For Major League baseball if the season is postponed, you can still play a shorter season, but there is no baseball in a Texas summer (Unless you have a air-conditioned stadium like the Rangers).
However, throughout all the madness surrounding the Coronavirus, there is still baseball cards, which is comforting. Recently I got a order from Comc, sparked by the card above. What you're seeing is a 1939-46 Exhibits card of Bob Feller, which, when I saw it on Comc for a mere $9, I knew I had to get. I'm a big Bob Feller fan, especially as I share his birthday. He had a pretty great career too, winning 266 games and making it to the Hall of Fame despite being the 1st baseball player to enlist in the army, missing 4 years.
As Comc has flat rate shipping, I got some other cards so I wasn't just getting 1 card. I decided to focus primarily on knuckleballers, as I collect practically all knuckleballers, and I wanted to build up my collection with some vintage examples. They also offer a nice contrast to Bob Feller, who was a flamethrower.
The day I got this package I also received an autograph return from Bobby Shantz, which I'd been putting off for too long. I was definitely glad to get it, as Shantz was both a MVP and a ERA champ. He also won 8 straight gold gloves from the start of the award to the end of his career.
