Vintage Fridays: Ellie Hendricks, 1976 Topps #371

Occasionally, I like the layout and photo of a card so much that I feel like my own words couldn't do it justice. Such is the case with this sublime card featuring Elrod Hendricks soaking up the sun on a bright afternoon late in his career and flashing a candid and typical smile. Just another day at the office for Mr. Oriole.

Nice words today, Kevin. You're so right, this is the quintessential Elrod Hendricks card... smiling up at sunny skies. Somewhere Elrod is signing an autograph and thanking the kid who asked for it.

Bob - If there's an afterlife, and it doesn't have Elrod Hendricks, it's probably not all it's cracked up to be!
