Dennis Martinez, 1984 Fleer #11
It's the big 6-0 today for Dennis Martinez! El Presidente was born on a momentous day. Other May 14 birthday boys include Hall of Famers Ed Walsh, Earle Combs, and Tony Perez, as well potential future Cooperstowner Roy Halladay. Dick Howser, who managed the Royals to their only World Series triumph in 1980, was another member of the 5-14 Club. I'd also like to give an honorable mention to ex-Blue Jays catcher Pat Borders, who belongs in the Hall of Fame of bad, wispy mustaches.
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.
