IT'S ONE THING TO BE A REAL CARD AND ANOTHER TO BE ON A REAL CARD
This morning, Walter Day, the official archivist of records and accomplishments in video games, asked me if I minded his adding my likeness to a trading card.
I thought he was joking. Obviously, he wasn't.
You may remember Walter from the movie, King of Kong. He is the owner of Twin Galaxies, the arcade and organization that has long guarded and maintained the history of video games from the player's perspective.
I have to admit, I am pretty excited to be on a trading card.
Walter, by the way, also reads Wayson Harris novels, which may explain why he is one of the few people involved in the industry who still remembers my name.
