A Toronto Blue Jay major league baseball card is one boys treasure and the same man's treasured memory with his mom 20 years later
28 February 2020 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

Such a well written episode with terrific acting from the entire Pearson clan. While mom Rebecca Pearson is trying extremely hard to contain her emotions and keep her anxiety at bay while waiting for the results of her medical tests, her son Kevin reminisces about the trip he and his his mom took some twenty years ago to a sports store as a reward for getting two (2) "A's" on his latest report card. Rebecca agreed to reward Kevin with five dollars for each "A" he obtained on his report card so young Kevin wanted to buy a specific major league baseball card to complete his baseball card collection. As it is with most of us, typically it is not the reward itself, but "the hunt" which is most memorable. Kevin finds himself reminiscing about how he and his mom went through each package of baseball cards, and chewing on each wad of gum included in each of the packages, hunting to find that allusive Toronto Blue Jays card, of John Candalaria.

Fast forward twenty years to the current time and Kevin convinces his mom to relax by taking her on a short road trip to complete one thing remaining on Rebecca's bucket list, to find Joni Mitchell's house which Rebecca and her then boyfriend and future husband Jack tried to do while they were still just dating. Using google maps and Siri, Kevin not only finds the house but walks u to the front door which causes Rebecca's heart to overflow with memories of her time with Jack and she begins to sing that famous song Joni Mitchell wrote "Our House".

It is a both a wonderful and magical episode that a person would have to be a complete zombie to not be touched with emotion and empathy.
