In the land of the beltway, football is king

Living in baseball-mad New York, you can forget that in most of the country, football is more popular than baseball. This is not usually reflected in baseball cards, but check out this 1992 Upper Deck card of Baltimore first baseman Randy Milligan playing with a camera in Memorial Stadium.

It's hard to see, even when I zoom in on the camera, but if you have the card you can clearly see that the camera actually belongs to the Redskins.

I guess the Orioles had to borrow cameras from the big football team in the area. I assume that these days the Orioles borrow their equipment from the Ravens.
