As I get ready to take the family to the Orioles-Mariners game tonight, I decided that the first item from the card show that I would showcase would be the first Hall of Fame baseball I picked up.
We had to swap our autograph tickets because both Ralph Kiner and Frank Robinson canceled due to illness. I haven't heard anything about either having major health issues and with Kiner (who is 89) you tend to get really worried. So, in exchange for my Saturday autograph meeting with Robinson, I was able to get Jim Rice. Since I didn't already have him, it was a wash.
