Each day we feature something from our collection of childhood bubblegum memories.  For those who remember them, these baseball cards have their own stories to tell.

What does this card bring to mind for you? Please share in the comments!

    Curt Blefary will always be associated as one of the “dreaded” Orioles from the mid- to late-sixties, a truly great team. Originally, signing with the Yankees before being traded to Baltimore, he was Rookie of the Year in 1965, but never really blossomed into a long-term star. The card on Baseballisms represents his full circle trip back to the Yankees signalling the end of his playing days. He is still an Oriole to me dang it.
