A Care Package From Bobby
I guess he had a few things he wanted to part with, so he sent out a care package. A lot of it was cards from UD Biography. Since Bobby is a huge vintage fan, I was really surprised to find the above 1954 Topps Bobby Young card in the package, in a special top loader that was marked "enjoy this."
I have been hoarding 1954s recently, preparing myself to pull the trigger on starting the set sometime in the future. That being said, I really did enjoy that he included the card.
This is a really nice card, from early in Jones's tenure in Baltimore. He has grown into the face of this Orioles team, and I am really happy that he is on our side. He seems to be maturing as a hitter. I would really love to see him finish his career in Baltimore and become part of a new generation of Orioles who have their numbers retired and new sculptures erected outside the outfield wall at Camden Yards.
I am really thankful that Bobby sent this package along to me. I believe he is one of the youngest people trading actively on Instagram. If I remember correctly, he is either 10 or 11. A real nice kid, I am happy that I received these cards. Now, I need to work to pay it forward to him and hook him up with some nice vintage.
