I don't have many friends to talk baseball with in person. Most of the baseball fans I know here follow and cheer for the Blue Jays, and used to follow or cheer for the Expos, but if I want to talk about the Mets, or other teams around the league, there is only one friend that I can count on to know what I want to talk about. He is retired, a life-long baseball fan, and used to be a card collector so he also gives me someone to excitedly tell about recent additions to my Browns collection.
Sometime before Christmas, while talking cards, he mentioned one card that he wished he had from when he was a kid. He didn't remember the year but it was easy to find with his description of who was on it. I decided to try and find a copy for him.
