Yeah uh huh. You know what it is. Black and yellow. Black and yellow.
is being sued for plagiarism of his song Black and Yellow which was "stolen in concept" from rapper Maxamillion's Pink and Yellow song copyrighted in 2007. While I don't really care for Wiz Khalifa, I am a fan of the song Black and Yellow because it gets me amped up to root for some Pittsburgh sports teams.
But what gets me more excited is some pieces of cardboard featuring clothing with black and yellow on it. Yesterday I went to my local mall after work and saw that they were having a baseball card show. Since I live in NJ, there's not a whole lot of Pittsburgh love. For baseball there's the Phillies, Yankees, and Mets. For hockey, it's the Devils, Rangers, and Flyers. Football has the Eagles, Giants, and Jets. No one likes the Pirates or Penguins around here, but there are quite a few Steeler fans. I had low hopes of finding anything of interest since that's what normally happens at these types of shows. Boy was I surprised to see a vendor there with boxes upon boxes full of vintage Pirates cards. I already have every base 1976-present Topps Pirates card, but I was able to get a good chunk of pre 1971 Topps for about $3 or less a card including some rag copies of 1952 Topps for $5. My girlfriend even picked up an original Piedmont 350 tobacco card which I will post sometime next week. In addition to the vintage cards, all of which will get their own post also next week, I picked up 2 sweet jersey cards of 2 of Pittsburgh most recognized sports heroes.
Stay tuned tomorrow for some old vintage Topps that I will post.
Oh and Let's Go Steelers!!!!
