Cameron Smith on baseball cards

 Cameron Smith was a third-round pick of the Tigers in 1993 and pitched thirteen seasons of professional baseball. His best season was 1995, when he went 13-8 with a 3.81 ERA for Fayetteville. Now a financial advisor at Wells Fargo in Pensacola, FL, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I had a huge card collection as a kid and would go to all the conventions.  I believe they are all still at my mom’s house.  My favorite card of myself was the one in the Detroit Tigers uniform.  It was my first big league spring training.  I still get people sending me cards to sign every so often and my kids think it’s the coolest thing."

Thanks! I don't have that card but here is one from my collection.
