hostess with the mostess

i had never considered the possibility that the 1977 rick monday hostess card would be one that i wanted to own.  i liked monday, but there were other guys on the 1977 and 1978 dodgers teams that i liked more.  and, since his 1977 topps card still had him as a cub, i figured there was no real need to add an oddball cub card to my collection.  even when i first saw his 1977 o-pee-chee card, which has him airbrushed into a dodgers hat, i still dismissed the hostess card.  surely hostess didn't bother with airbrushing.  then i saw the card.
and now it's mine.  the lesson here is to never underestimate the power of assorted baked goods.  after all, 'you get a big delight in every bite'!
