So after Monday's sticker addition of Wayne Knight, I could pretty much call my sticker album complete if I so chose. I added the best sticker of all time, that's that, game over, everyone go home.
Except...I noticed my terrible formatting left a blank space:
So I went with my OTHER sticker from that same 1989 Batman set - Jack Nicholson as the Joker:
Such an awesome card...I love Nicholson as an actor, especially in this movie and stuff like The Shining or Chinatown. So I'm pretty pumped to add him to the binder.
As for McCarty, he was one of THE Celtics to cheer for back when Paul Pierce was just beginning his legacy. The Celtics announcer had a fantastic way of saying "Wal-tah" that really made it fun to watch him play. So he definitely gets added to the binder, as will Pierce someday if I ever find a good sticker of his.
When I added Jack and the sticky cards to the binder, it looked like this:
Much better - even if the Deion Branch is now a bit less sticky after putting that sticker on and off so many times!
Below the Nicholson are three Browns I added on. One is Mohamed Massaquoi (who I collect), one is Josh Cribbs (who I used to collect), and one is Jerome Harrison, who has a great then sad then uplifting life story:
He spent that year in Philly before bouncing to Detroit for two years, and that would've been the end of a typical journeyman career were it not for Detroit trading Harrison back to the Eagles in 2013. The trade fell through, with the reason being that Harrison's physical showed a benign brain tumor surrounded by blood vessels. He underwent surgery right away, but the vessels caused complications and for a small period of time they were worried Harrison might not make it through the surgery. He did, and was expected to be a quadriplegic, but has made great strides in recovery since that time and even shot a little video in 2013 to show some of his story. Caution if you watch it...there's a good chance it might get a little dusty in the room you're in:
Last but not least, I added some stickers to the middle of the binder to even up that part. I took two stickers from the quads below, Brayan Pena and Dewon Brazelton.
I needed one more sticker to finish off the middle, so I added the Vincent Brisby in the bottom left of this quad:
Here's all those middle cards together:
And then here's the whole binder right now:
