My #WalletCard - Roughed Up and Disheveled

Like a lot of card collectors online, I joined the #WalletCard craze early last year.  I dutifully chose the 1990 Donruss Orel Hershiser "59 and Counting" card, put it in my billfold and took it with me everywhere I went.  Unfortunately, I failed to follow through with my promise to document my adventures with the card in tow.

Days, weeks and then months passed by.  Still no post.

For reasons unexplained, I just never pulled it out and took a pic.

I guess I'm just a lazy bum.  I dunno.

Anyway, it has rested comfortably in my wallet for over 12 months, and now you'll finally get a peek at its current state of condition.  Take a look at my #WalletCard above and below.

That is one beat up piece of cardboard.

Strangely, though, I find it beautiful. 

It has survived a full year hidden between fading ATM receipts, a losing Powerball ticket and small cash bills waiting to be spent.  And still, it maintains the aura for which it was initially intended.  This card is a daily reminder that although we are worn through the passage of time it still lives on. 

It remains one of my favorite things - from a hobby I enjoy - of a game I absolutely love.

Here is my #WalletCard.  And for as long as it'll have me, I think I'll leave it right where it is.

I wonder what it'll look like next year at this time.
