    Default Interesting case candy, Thile Rookie Card?

    I recently bought a mandolin here in the classifieds. To my delight this was tucked away between some spare string sets. Click image for larger version.

    Impressive stats.

    By the way, was Thile the youngest-ever winner of Winfield?

    Hey thanks for the photo help!
    I didn't know until I found this card and searched the forum to find Chris is a lefty that picks right handed, as am I. Hopefully that accounts for some of his musical mastery!!

    Must have only been in a special (early?) edition or something. I bought that CD around 2008 and it had no such card in it. Pretty cool, though! I'd never seen it before.

    It is a proven statistical fact that left-handed people tend to have higher IQs and special skills. I don't know if it's a function of their brains being wired differently, and making them left-handed is a side effect of that, or whether being left-handed and having to live in a right-handed world causes their brains to adapt more efficiently and learn better. But it's an interesting phenomenon. (I'm right-handed but my twin brother is left-handed.) I do think that Thile's left-handedness is partially at play with his mastery of the mandolin. Both physically and mentally.
    Keep that skillet good and greasy all the time!

    He's admittedly a huge Cubs fan...probably has at least one stuck in a storage box in the attic...
