Bud Smith on baseball cards

Bud Smith pitched eight seasons of professional baseball, including two years in the major leagues with the St. Louis Cardinals. On September 3, 2001 he pitched a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres. Now a scout for the Toronto Blue Jays, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I was a huge card collector as a kid and still have most of them in boxes. My favorite card was by far the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr card. Still have it in one of the thick glass cases as if it were worth thousands. Not so much but was fun to collect. As far as collecting my own cards I didn't but my family did, kind of cool now because my 7 year old son has them all."
