Bill Ostermeyer on baseball cards.

First baseman Bill Ostermeyer played in the Padres organization from 1990 to 1993, hitting 31 home runs in 694 at bats. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"My favorite cards were of pitchers posing with bats. I always thought that was funny. I collect a few, wish I could get some of my old cards, my mom gave em all away. My favorite card would have to be Scott Ericksons Prince of Darkness card while he pitched for Minnesota."

Thanks! I couldn't find a card of Erickson with his "Prince of Darkness" nickname. He got that nickname as well as the nickname "Dr. Death" because of his black wardrobe and heavy metal music fandom. Anyone know of any cards that reference this?
