Jim Palmer, 2010 Topps Hall of Fame Stars #HOF-9

I'm sick with what I'm hoping is just a cold, so while I'm couch-bound and feeling sorry for myself I'll leave you this spiffy card featuring a young Jim Palmer in a Rochester Red Wings uniform. Interestingly enough, "Cakes" actually went straight from the Class A Aberdeen (SD) Pheasants in 1964 to the Orioles in 1965. But he did spend time in Rochester on rehab assignments in 1967 and 1968.
