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

Mike Mussina, 1994 Upper Deck #102
I usually don't post scans of card backs, but this one has a great view of Camden Yards that you don't often see on cards. As Mike Mussina rushes to cover first base, we can see straight through to the center field picnic area and the double-deck bullpens. The sign behind Moose is advertising the Giant Foods supermarket chain, and from the loose way that the Maryland flag hangs, it's apparently a windless day. Just looking at this photo makes me wish I was sitting in the bleachers along Eutaw Street.
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.
