NEW YORK - Anyone who's watched Jon Hamm on AMC's Mad Men over the past seven years is used to seeing the actor sitting around a conference room table in a suit, pitching his product to a captive audience.

The 43-year-old St. Louis native certainly looked like his Don Draper character when he sat down for a roundtable with a handful of media members Friday morning, but instead of selling Lucky Strike or Samsonite, he was happy to extol the virtues of various players from the mid '80s Cardinals teams he grew up rooting for.
