The Quest

The Baltimore Orioles have been in town since '54 and have had over 900 men don their uniform. My goal is to obtain a signed card of each player. If you have something I need, or see something you want, don't be shy, we can make a deal.

A Waste of Money?

I got a little click happy the other day on "The Bay" and feel like I over paid for an Orioles Crown autograph. Let me know what you think?

Here are his on field stats:
20 Career wins (7 as an Oriole)
3.62 ERA lifetime
210 K's
3 Saves
1 World Series ring

Signing stats:
0 recorded TTM autographs
21 years since his last makor league appearance

Combined cost over $30

This is the most I have spent on any single Orioles autograph since starting my project. And since many people have no idea who this player is I will have an impromptu contest. First person to correctly identify my new addition in the comments gets his autograph (not as an Oriole)

  1. If I weren't bored at work, I never would have bothered to figure it out.

    It was Brian Holton, who won the World Series as a member of the Dodgers a year prior to joining the O's in '89.
