1990 CMC #240 Mickey Morandini

Snowed in again? Blizzard of '10 got you down? First of all, it's comforting to think pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training next week, despite the 4 feet of snow currently on the ground in my yard.

Second, Steve78 recently left a comment on one of my Brian Hunter posts, which led me to his cool blog on the 1990 CMC minor league set. If you need something fun to read and if you're interested in learning more about former Phillies Bob Scanlan, Bob Sebra and Gordon Dillard, please head over to Steve's blog and check it out. I have one request for Steve - Is it possible to find out why the photographer for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons insisted most of the team remove their hats for their pictures? The Red Barons team set contains several tragic examples of the always embarrassing hat head.

Steve's got 880 subjects to cover in the 1990 CMC set, and I'll be there when he gets around to Mickey Morandini's card.

That is correct! He'll be back this year along with Mike Schmidt.
