Trade Me Anything VI #10

Everyone's favorite Orioles card blogger decided to get in on some sweet O's action. Watch and learn.

Giving:
2012 Topps Update Series Golden Greats #GG-78 Brooks Robinson, Gold Parallel #107 Luke Scott (0023/2012)
Getting:
A bunch of big Brewers from the oversized 1994 Fleer Extra Bases set
A couple of stacks of cards.
Lots of Bucks and oddballs, with a few true gems thrown in. Here are five that I have time to share.
1960 Topps #51 Bart Starr
1960 Topps #54 Paul Hornung
Wow, incredibly generous with both of these cards. Creases and tape marks abound, but I will still treasure these.
1994 Score #96 Reggie Cobb
Imagine being a teenage Packers fan and finally seeing your team experience some success in the mid-1990s. You want to relive some of those first few Favre comebacks on your Sega Genesis, so you scrape together the money to buy a copy of Madden '95. You pop the cartridge into the console, select your squad, and BOOM! you've got Reggie Cobb falling forward for two yards? Where's Dorsey Levens? Where's Edgar Bennett? The Cobb season in '94 is completely forgotten in these parts.
1989 Topps Batman #45 "Hi Honey!"
I've already confessed on Twitter to have never seen the Tim Burton Batman movie. These cards don't do much to bring me up to speed on the plot. Lots of weird, quasi-erotic '80s art doesn't do much to clear things up. I promise, I'll watch the movie someday.
1991 Topps Desert Storm Sticker #32 U.S.S.R.
Annnnnnd this one's going right on the front of my lesson plan book.
Thanks, Kevin, you outdid yourself this year.

Everyone else, get back to guessing the DVD connection. It's a good one this time.

All I can think of is:
"April 12, 1990. Baltimore County Hospital"
That's all I've got. Baltimore is featured prominently in that movie, if I remember correctly.

Yep, you got it. 12 Monkeys takes place in Baltimore and was shot in Baltimore and Philly.
