Joe Carter, 1998 Fleer Flair Showcase Flair #62

This week is taking entirely too long. A continually worsening head cold and a five-day training course in Washington, D.C. are the major culprits. Thankfully, I responded to a quick interview by Stacey at Camden Chat while I was still of a clearer mind. She's started profiling other noteworthy Orioles blogs during the offseason, which strikes me as an idea that's smart enough (and simple enough) that it should have been done sooner. Give it a read!

As for this card...ten years in the rear view, it's harmless enough to laugh at. Joe Carter as an Oriole? An iridescent oversized background portrait of Joe with a full-color action shot overlay? The insanely redundant set name? Fleer, what are we supposed to do without you?

Just Booing Joe Carter - no matter what uniform he is wearing.

Oh man, I didn't even consider the 1993 WS when posting! Consider today's entry a peace offering.

I must have blinked the moment Joe was an Oriole. Don't remember it.
