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

Dick Williams, 1991 Crown/Coca-Cola All-Time Orioles #486
Last night the Orioles won 3-1, giving Buck Showalter his 250th victory as the team's manager. He had previously won 313 games with the Yankees, an even 250 with the Diamondbacks, and 319 with the Rangers. So now Buck can say that he is one of only four skippers in big league history to win at least 250 games for each of four different teams. The others were Joe Torre, Gene Mauch, and former O's utility player Dick Williams. Torre actually reached 250 wins with five different teams, but that's a record that I'd prefer Showalter not chase. I'd feel better with him chasing several hundred more wins in orange and black, if it's all the same.
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.
