First baseman Orlando Merced played thirteen seasons in the major leagues, mostly for the Pirates. In 1,391 games he hit .277 with 103 HR and 585 RBI. Now a minor league hitting coach in the Reds organization, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.
"I feel a tremendous amount of joy knowing that the fans enjoy
and send my cards to Puerto Rico to be signed every week. I don’t collect baseball cards or any other memorabilia."
