Shakespeare Baseball Card

New reader Ken sent me this link to the Shakespeare Trading Card (can you really call it a baseball card?) that’s part of the 2010 Topps Allen and Ginter set known as “World’s Wordsmiths”. There’s not a whole bunch of content to talk about, so go check it out and pay the $4 if you simply must have one.  I do like, though, how they write about the “almost 200 surviving works” of our Stratford man.  I guess they’re counting every individual sonnet as a separate thing?  Would have been cooler if the back had actual stats like a baseball player – date of birth, number of plays, number of sonnets, words invented, number of children, etc… Thanks, Ken!
