Augie Ojeda on baseball cards

Infielder Augie Ojeda played nine seasons in the major leagues for the Cubs, Twins and Diamondbacks. In 502 games he hit .234 with 7 HR and 81 RBI. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I started collecting baseball cards age 6-15 years old. Would ask my mom for 50 cents a week to buy a new pack. Favorite card was the Cal Ripken rookie card. Not so mint though but still my favorite. I always wanted the Ken Griffey Jr Upper Deck rookie card. Never had the luck to score Jr. My friend and I would play RBI Baseball in Nintendo for new packs of baseball cards . Til this day every time I see my own cards I get chills. Always a dream of mine having my own baseball card."
