Sure, every baseball card set has a lot of guys… But after I bought the 2012 Norfolk Tides set, I discovered it had a lot of guys, in the sense of “Hey, it’s that guy!”
It’s got the guy who was the primary reason I bought the set (in order to add to Mrs. Shlabotnik’s Brian Roberts PC):
It’s got the guy who was playing in the Majors well before the opening of Norfolk’s Harbor Park, which was celebrating it’s 20th anniversary that year…
OK, fine, Harbor Park wasn’t celebrating, the Tides were.
It’s got the guy who’s a favorite among collectors, as he’s a collector himself…
It’s got schmucks who played for the Orioles…
…I’m sorry, did I say “schmuck”? I meant “Former A.L. MVP”.
It’s got a former Rookie Of The Year and 20 game winner, who undoubtedly appeared in many minor league sets during his quest to re-establish himself in the majors..
(D-Train recently announced his retirement at 33).
It’s got several guys who were on the verge of helping the Orioles out:
It’s got the guy who helped fill in when Matt Wieters was out for much of this past season:
And it’s got a guy who looks like he’s dancing to “Cotton Eye Joe”
Where did you come from, where did you go?
Where did you come from Cotton Eye Joe?
