Musing about my five collecting interests: all things Orioles, 50's Baseball, team publications, Japanese cards and even some football and hockey.
You might find some beautiful women, soccer stuff, presidential pins and life advice from time to time. I don't charge extra for any of those.

Just Some Saturday Vintage Palmers
Had these scanned and thought I'd toss them up today. Been a very busy few days so I don't have much time to ramble (lucky you).
First his 1974 Topps. I'm partial to sets that use team colors.
Here is a rather beaten up copy of his '66 rookie card. I have several but I don't know which one is my original. My best copy is in the Orioles team set binders.
1970 Palmer used a very similar pose.
Here are a couple of recent ones which brings up a question. What do we call these? Sure they are 'Palmer cards' but obviously not issued during his career. Retro Palmers? Throwback Palmers?
