He leans forward at the desk in his cluttered study, fanning out three baseball cards like a man unveiling the winning hand in a poker game. The faces are in black and white, the subjects in bow ties and upturned mustaches. The names - Gleason, Hemming, Reitz - would mean little to most modern fans. Yet the players belonged to perhaps the greatest team in local baseball history, the cards to a set so rare that owning them changed Dan McKee's life. He sold them for six figures in 2006, earning enough on the deal to purchase his family's dream home in northern Baltimore County.

In 1964-65, Parkhurst did not issue hockey cards, and Topps' cards grew to 2 1/2 by 4 11/16 inches. The "Tall Boys" are coming back this month, but they'll be Parkies.Last year, Brian Price, president of Parkhurst, created the "Missing Link" set, his conception of what the 1956-57 cards would have looked like had Parkhurst chosen to issue a set that season.This year, he's chosen the "Tall Boy" concept for another set Parkhurst never made, cards for the '64-65 season (the last original Parkhurst set was 1963-64)

In its fourth season, Upper Deck resisted the temptation to put its migrating line in the final position to complete a square.Instead, it ditched the line and gave the cards a different, more sophisticated look.The card-front picture is offset by a shadow strip on two sides, creating a three-dimensional effect. Team logos are free-standing. The Upper Deck logo has a speeding baseball coming out of it and shares the top of the card with the player's name. For his position, you have to turn over the card.

Despite tightening school budgets and a perpetual rallying cry for more funding, Baltimore school administrators spent roughly $500,000 during the past year and a half on expenses such as a $7,300 office retreat at a downtown hotel, $300-per-night stays at hotels, and a $1,000 dinner at an exclusive members-only club, credit card statements show. City school officials defend the majority of the credit card expenditures - outlined in statements and receipts obtained by The Baltimore Sun through a Maryland Public Information Act request - as "the cost of doing business," saying only a handful of "outliers" show questionable judgment or disregard for taxpayer money.

When Don Berkus set up his first baseball card convention 41 years ago, a few dozen collectors gathered inside a Los Angeles hotel room at 10 a.m. and within an hour had spent pretty much all the money they had. This weekend, the National Sports Collectors Convention he started 10 years later is holding court at the Baltimore Convention Center through Sunday, and Berkus expects upward of 35,000 people to show up. Times change, Berkus admits....

Development in Howard County is experiencing a mild rebound after hitting a historic low last year, suggesting the worst of the recession might be over, according to an annual government report that tracks building activity in the county. Only 1,163 new residences were completed in the year ending Sept. 30, 2009, the lowest number since 1982, according to the recently completed Development Monitoring Report. But the number of issued building permits increased, and continued to climb in the final quarter of 2009, after the reporting period ended, planners said.

Maryland was one of just 11 states to earn a grade of B for its efforts to combat obesity, according to the University of Baltimore's second annual report card. That wasn't bad, because no state earned an A and Maryland improved from its C rating in 2004. The grades are based on legislation enacted to help control obesity. Maryland's improvement was the result of three measures. One requires time locks limiting access to school vending machines. Another authorizes a state physical education director to oversee school programs.

Nearly two years after its debut, Maryland's online report card on hospital performance appears to be fulfilling a key mission: driving hospitals to improve. The hospitals, for example, are getting better overall at taking commonsense steps to help patients with heart failure and pneumonia. Evidence includes higher rates of pneumococcal vaccinations, according to the state agency that compiles what is formally called the Maryland Hospital Performance Evaluation Guide. But as the updated report card showed yesterday, individual hospitals still have lots of room for improvement.

WASHINGTON - While some seniors can save money with Medicare drug discount cards, many of those already enrolled in state assistance programs aren't likely to see any major saving, according to a study released yesterday. "There's nothing particularly that has changed for them," said Michael Hash, an analyst at the Health Policy Alternatives Inc., which conducted the study for the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health care group. Still, he said, states are likely to save lots of money by shifting costs to the federal government.

WHY AREN'T we moving faster to clean up Maryland's environment? Republican legislators and pro-business politicians. Why doesn't Maryland have a better business climate? Elected Democrats and pro-environment politicians. I base this on the latest legislative score cards from the nonpartisan Maryland League of Conservation Voters and the nonpartisan Maryland Business for Responsive Government (MBRG). Both organizations, along with just about everyone breathing, subscribe to the mantra that a healthy environment and a healthy economy go hand in hand.
