Of course Ana's gifts come from Portugal (which also gifted the world with my grandfather) and are quite a welcome sight. Here are the highlights:
I also keep a big 'Star Player' binder. Into that one will go these two cards of Griffey Jr. I always thought the first time I saw him play was the 1986 All Star Game in Houston. But I went to check and I saw that he didn't make his debut until 1989. So he's come and gone, putting up Hall of Fame numbers, after a game I saw that seems like yesterday to me. I'm really feeling old.
From Fuji out in San Jose came some of this, and some of that.
Several new to me Adam Jones cards. AJ homered last night. He's awesome. And very funny on the post game interviews he does with the O's TV crew.
A Terry Kennedy Stand-up. Off the wall stuff like this has a place in my binders.
A new Brian Roberts card. Like I said, I don't hold grudges. How can anyone be upset with Brian Roberts anyway. He was the only guy worth watching on the Orioles for many years.
I don't collect Beddard but I do collect swatch cards of Orioles.
There were also some Ripkens and some Orioles signed cards. All welcome additions.
Thanks to both Ana and Fuji. This is a great hobby, isn't it? Lot's of good people out there!
