Good times at a card show on a Sunday

Yesterday I went to a card show sponsored by the Dugout Zone, my local card shop, at the Pikesville Hilton and bought a bunch of cheap cards to send for autograph requests and some cards of the O's current minor league players to try to get signed. I also bought a couple of inexpensive signed cards of guys that I didn't already have autographs of. I will update that later with pictures of the cards.

However, I couldn't wait to pass along my highlight of the day, meeting Earl Weaver! He was very nice and graciously accepted my request to have my picture taken with him. It was great to meet "the Earl of Baltimore" and one of the most memorable HOF managers of all time! And he didn't swear at me once even though I kept calling pitches outside.

You know I think I know where the Pikesville Hilton is!
