Cal Ripken, Jr., 1999 Upper Deck Victory #452
Much as this card is flashing back to Cal Ripken's rookie season of 1982, I'm flashing back to Saturday to time-stamp this blog entry, even though I'm writing it past midnight. Pretty scandalous. Meanwhile, I'm quite confident that Junior's hair was never that thick and dark...but that's probably my own creeping sense of mortality talking, considering that this photo is about as old as I am. At least I still have my hair.
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.
