The Three "White Whales" so to speak of my collection. I wanted these sooooo bad
The opportunity to get these came from a random source actually. I didn't find them, but my aunt in San Angelo, Texas did. She called my mom and let her know, and my mom said to pick them up. I couldn't believe it! All 3, would be mine! I thought I'd be lucky to just get one, much less all three! I was sooooooo excited, I couldn't wait till she mailed them off to me and I could display them and just stare at them in amazement! There was a catch though. You see that summer, we were supposed to visit them, so my mom told my aunt not to worry about sending them. Since we'd be there in the summer, we'd get them then. WHAT?!?! You mean I now have to wait MONTHS to get these in my possession?! How CRUEL!!!! I begged and pleaded, but my mom said there shouldn't be a rush and eventually I'd have them. I had to be patient....VERRRRRRRRY PATIENT. It drove me crazy just waiting for them, but in the back of my mind I knew they were mine. I would still check to see if we could find them in Corpus (of course we didn't). I was excited to go to San Angelo to visit my cousin, but this definitely added to the anticipation and excitement. Finally, when we arrived and said our hello's, I innocently asked where she had the figures. My aunt brought out the Toys R Us bags and there they were, in alllllll their glory. I might have waited quite a while, but it definitely made it that much more special when I got my hands on and it's one Starting Lineup Story I will never forget!
