The Pope's Baseball Card

So they make a baseball card featuring John Paul II, but not one for me? It’s a little upsetting, but I’ll get over it.

It actually came in a pack of baseball cards? Not very Pope-like, do you think? Someone should design you a card for yourself. I think you should think about sending it out in something more dignified though. Hey, didn't they used to have cards in cigarette packs? There's a thought.

Better yet, how about a collector's bottle of Pinot with your autograph on the label? That way it will double the value cause the signature will increase in value and so will the wine as it ages. It's also much more theological, I mean Jesus didn't pass out baseball cards at the last supper, right?

If and when you do get your own card, make sure it has your handsome face on it and a list of stats of all your good deeds.

Let's take a serious look at the facts:

How many home runs have you hit? RBI's? Doubles? Stolen Bases? You're still hitting under .250!!!

You are just like another one of these new-era prima donna's that wants all the glory before producing anything. Put a couple of good, consistent seasons under your holy belt and then MAYBE you will be worthy of your own card.

note: I have a bunch of ex-Cardinals baseball cards.

Your Excellency,

If you were Jewish you could be on a Rabbi trading card.

Shalom.

I don't blame you for being upset about this baseball card thing. But you've only just begun. You've made it to the big leagues for heaven's sake. (Pun intended.) You'll get your own card.

Meanwhile, could you be sure to bless the Red Sox again this year?

I think your Escalade should be on a baseball card with you.

Well, remember: he was the Pope for 26 years! Give yourself a bit of time...you need a reputation: one to acquire and one to get over! Being a Hitler Youth and all is a strike against you (no pun intended.)

I suppose you're right. I should be patient.

Yeah, besides, you need to have more amazing and holy things to list on the back of the card like "Sabatouged Teen Skankdom," and "Saved World From Apocalypse in 2005."

I think you have to die first. It's a lousy trade-off. Talk to the milk carton people. Maybe they can stick you beneath the missing kids pictures. That'll get some attention.

Don't be sad, Pope Joey, your day will come!

Don't worry whenever you die you will get just as cool a card, though if I were you I would aim for something a little bit higher than a mere baseball card...hehe

Marvel even produced a comic. The Pope # 1! Apparently, a Polish prelate and friend of the Pope divulged a non-Vatican approved auto-biography up to the assasination attempt. Marvel was contacted by Vatican lawyers and had to put a halt to it all after Mother Theresa #1.

I have a mint condition copy.. ~smiles~
