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.

Bobbling Over

The basement is down to concrete and studs. My office is part card collecting sanctuary and part nursery. Soon my office and card collection will be in the basement and I am running out of room. Before the transition I was thinking of paring down the memorabilia side of my collection.

Listen up all you Bobble Heads out there. I have two Orioles Hall of Famers hitting the market.

Eddie Murray JB&A Southwest Airlines bobblehead

Cal Ripken 2000 SGA Bobblehead

Cal Ripken 2001 Bobblehead

There is only one Cal Ripken bobblehead available. Why two pictures you ask? I actually have three Ripken bobbleheads, but can't remember if I have a duplicate black or a duplicate white jersey. With the renovations ongoing, one bobblehead is in storage, just not sure which. The Ripken bobble has the box, the Eddie does not.

I know it is unconventional to offer an item for trade without a detailed description. Well, back off. I do what I want here. Obviously looking to trade if possible for autographs I need. If not, I would entertain offers.


  1. Well, I'm definitely interested in the Eddie Murray.

    I can't help with you with your Orioles auto needs, but maybe we could work something else out.

    Here's some cards I have for trade:

  2. Very interested in the Cal. I'm pretty sure I still have a few autographs you might be interested in...let me know.

  3. Where can we find the list of autographs that you need? I'd be interested in Murray.

  4. Dodger Bobble-I would prefer to trade for autos I need. If no one else has autos for me, I will entertain a trade with you as you were the first responder.

    Ryan-I know I do need some from you still. Any way to quantify bobble vs auto?

    Craig-On my side bar is a link to the master list. It has every player listed and if blank, I dont have that player at all. I can always look at lists as necessary.

  5. Kirk - I have signed cards from your list of the following players. If any of them interest you, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
