(Blogathon ’16) Baseball Card Haikus

This post is part of the 2016 Baseball Continuum Blogathon For Charity, benefiting the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation. The Roswell Park Alliance Foundation is the charitable arm of Roswell Park Cancer Institute and funds raised will be “put to immediate use to increase the pace from research trials into improved clinical care, to ensure state-of-the-art facilities, and to help improve the quality of life for patients and their families.” Please donate through the Blogathon’s GoFundMe page.

Once, long ago, in the distant year of 2013, I went on a quest to write a crummy Haiku about every card I found in a potpourri of a value pack of baseball cards. It ended at number 18.

But, this morning, it returns. Now, I won’t be doing a “true” Haiku, but I will be doing the 5-7-5 format.
