Orioles Card "O" the Day

An intersection of two of my passions: baseball cards and the Baltimore Orioles. Updated daily?

Ed Barnowski, 1991 Crown/Coca-Cola All-Time Orioles #22

Pitcher Ed Barnowski is one of twenty major leaguers to come out of Scranton, PA. Of course, most of you know Scranton as the setting of "The Office", which happens to be one of my favorite TV shows. If you're a real sports nut, you may also know it (in conjunction with neighboring Wilkes-Barre) as the hometown of the Yankees' AAA affiliate, the Penguins' minor-league hockey affiliate, and the Arena Football League 2's Pioneers. It's also the location of the University of Scranton, the alma mater of my grandparents, incidentally. Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be driving past Scranton with my family en route to our cottage in northeastern Pennsylvania, which is situated about an hour north of the "Electric City". We're spending the holiday weekend up there in order to open the little lakeside dwelling for the summer. It's a true getaway destination, nestled in the mountains and sitting on a manmade lake. It's four hours from home, and there's no cable or Internet (gasp!). So I'm abandoning you again for a few days, but the next four installments of "This Day in Orioles History" are scheduled to auto-post in my absence. I might just have a surprise in store for you in the middle of next week, so sit tight and enjoy your long weekend!

I have ther complete set of 1991 Orioles sold through Crown Petroleum with all featured Orioles from 1954 to 1991. There are 501 players featured in this set. Have never seen another full set and they have been in my dresser drawer for twenty years. Looking to sell if the price is right.
