Jim Palmer, 2001 Topps American Pie #46
I went out in search of the little extra touches tonight, and I found one stashed in the background of this posed photo from an indeterminate date late in Jim Palmer's career. Yes, that's Elrod Hendricks milling about in the background in his familiar #44 jersey. It appears that he's doing exactly what Ellie was known best for: signing autographs for appreciative Orioles fans. That's why you should always look closely at your cards once in a while, no matter how long you've had them. You don't know what you'll see that escaped your attention in the past.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
