Why is Bucky Dent in my Mailbox?

So I opened my mail last night … and there he was.

Bucky Dent. 

Well, at least a three and a half inch cardboard facsimile of him in near-Mint condition.

Someone is anonymously sending baseball cards to baseball bloggers and writers ... including David Pinto, Will Carroll and Craig Calcaterra

Mystery was solved yesterday: It's the publisher of Josh Wilker's upcoming Cardboard Gods book, doing a little early viral marketing.

GGC sent me a Lou Piniella card when my apartment burned down. Still have it, too.

Wilker is a good writer, but I always feel a little depressed after visiting Cardboard Gods.

Lederer once sent me a card of myself.

Seems like a nice move, and probably much wiser than sending you a Bobby Richardson card.

The series with Richie Hebner as tour guide to the dead was masterful.

Most Richardson cards never had a first run.

A disgruntled Sox fan still smarting over 1978?
