"At the back of the drawer, a flash of color caught Griffin's eye. He reached in and pulled out an old faded card. On one side of the card was a message: Top Dog Bakery Products - For the Sandwich of Champions, on the other side there was a colored drawing of a baseball player shouldering a bat. Griffin read the name at the bottom of the card: George Herman (Babe) Ruth."
