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

Luis Aparicio, 2003 Fleer Tradition #67
The magic number is 11. The division lead is 10. The Orioles are 19-9 over the past three years in Fenway Park. The last time any American League East team other than the Yankees or Red Sox had a double-digit lead in the division, the Tigers were running roughshod in 1984. (That was also the year that Little Looie Aparicio was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.) The last time an Orioles team had a lead this large, it was 1979. I wasn't alive then, and nobody on the current Baltimore roster was alive, either. Please don't wake me just yet.
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.
