    My wife's grandma found some old cool Reds nuggets in her basement.

    I think we need something cool, since this season is going down the tubes.

    I have that book. I may have that Wheaties box but not sure about that. I do know I have a Wheaties box with Johnny Bench on it.

    **Also fun to look at your check register behind the book. Looks like you might be overdrawn.

    Dad has the cereal box but still sealed. A bunch of the old pop bottles of the 1975 and 1976 Reds....also 2 of the uncut baseball card sheets from 1990

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    For a long time I did too. But my significant other finally made me open it up and throw out the wheaties. True story.

    I have those too. I asked Bench to sign his hof Wheaties box and he said his contract forbid him to. He signed a ball for me.

    I think it was a test and you failed.

    That's a question I've been asking a long series of women over the years going back to my mother.

    I came across this book while boxing up some book this past weekend. I also had another one I forgot about called The Royal Reds. I'm pretty sure it was about the 1976 season.

    I have an All Star Game hat from the 1988 All Star Game. I like the logo on it better than this year. If I get a chance this weekend I'll take a picture of it and post it.
