What eBay Hath Wrought 34: Bo Jackson 2013 Topps Update Photo Variation

This was the one photo variation I really wanted from the 2013 Topps Update set. I guess I don't really have a lot to say about it, but I picked it up on eBay a while back for a few dollars.

I am pretty happy that the Denver Broncos won their game this week and advance to play New England in the Conference Championship next week. The game was a little too close for my liking, so I am hoping that they can pull out a little extra because it will take more than a middling effort to beat Tom Brady and the Patriots than it did to beat Philip Rivers and the Chargers. The highlight of the game for me was probably watching the Chargers defense jump offsides five times when Peyton Manning yelled, "Omaha!" Also when Philip Rivers pitched a fit after the center snapped the ball too late to avoid a Delay of Game penalty.

The thing I didn't like so much was trying to answer a phone call, having the phone get caught on my pocket, and dropping the phone into the dogs' water bowl. At first the sound wasn't working at all, but after a few hours in a bowl of dry rice I have recovered the ability to hear phone calls, but not music, sound from videos, or most importantly, my alarms. We have warranties on our phones anyway, but it would take a week or more to send the phone in and get it repaired or replaced an I really don't want to deal with that. Hopefully it will be back to normal by tomorrow.


  1. I don't have that one, but I always thought he was WEARING the hat. Is he actually just holding it up to his head?

    1. Yeah, it looks like he is either holding it up or wearing it on top of his other hat.
