Friday night poker

poker night with the guys. "hey! it's Ben McDonald from the 1994 Baltimore Orioles!" we played 10/20 mixed rotation into the early hours of the morning, when i snapped this.

I remember Ben McDonald- he was a huge pitching prospect when he first came up. His rookie card was the most value card in the 1994 sets according Beckett, but then he ended up sucking. Or maybe he got injured, I can't remember.

Still, I don't understand the reference. Does he look like the guy in the picture?

a couple of girls we have played with have mentioned that he looks like Ben McDonald, and he actually sort of does.

I was huge into baseball cards growing up as a kid. I'll never forget collecting my favorite set, which would have to be the 1987 Topps, during first and second grade.

1987 Topps was the first set I collected, too. Good times.
