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!

We would love to hear from you. Send a Tweet to @baseballisms with a quick message, send us an email or visit our Upload page with a video message.  We look forward to growing a community of fans interested in the poetry of the game of baseball!

    Palmiero was traded away so that the Cubs could go with Mark Grace at first. Grace had a very good to great career, and all the Cubs fans loved him, but I wonder if having Palmiero's bat in the lineup would have made the 90s a better decade than it was. Because the 90s were terribly lean years on the North side.
