Orlando Merced on baseball cards

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."
