Honest NFL Logos

6900 Fifth Avenue 06/16/1948

I believe there is currently a doggy-daycare on this corner.  It's also quite close to that delicious/horrible fried fish and chicken place (Hook?).

This past weekend, I found an old box of baseball cards in my childhood bedroom.  This glamour shot of Orlando Merced from 1992 was one of the first cards I found.  What a gem.
