So, you know, it’s moving-out day, right? So I go out to the dumpsters looking for some real great finds or at least lunch. So, I find on the ground a basketball card of Cliff Eugene Levingston. Okay, I have to tell you that it’s not his rookie card, no. It’s in fact his 8th season in the NBA and he had just been traded to the Bulls when this card was printed— but I swear to you, he don’t look a day older than when he was drafted out of Wichita State. You know they’re called the Shockers, right? Wichita State is. After wheat or something, but you can imagine the college kids had some good fun with that team sports nickname. But, here’s the deal: I will give you this card for…okay, hm. I’m deal-maker. I like negotiating, but I wouldn’t feel right doing that now, so I will give you this card, which normally has a street value of “found,” for 5 bucks. Not even American dollars if you ain’t got any.
