Mark Reynolds, 2012 Bowman Gold #52
The Pursuit of 80's(ness). We haven't traded in a few years, so it was nice to hear from him...even if I do hope that my Orioles trounce his Red Sox in the three-game series that just got underway an hour ago. It would be especially nice if Mark Reynolds could reverse his near-season-long struggles and crank out a few home runs against Boston pitching. Although this photo appears to have been taken at a Grapefruit League game in Sarasota, it's nice to see an Esskay sign making its blurry presence felt in the background. As a true O's fan, naturally I buy only Esskay chicken and pork franks. Whenever I check the receipt from the Food Lion, I always get a chuckle: the shorthand from the scanner reads "Oriole Meat Franks". I choose to believe that no Baltimore Orioles have been harmed in the production of my wieners, but if they have, they are quite delicious.
