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.

The Longest Day-2012 Orioles FanFest

I am happy that it is over. It was a great day, with a lot of signings, a few names crossed off the Master List, lots of good people and only one altercation (no fist-a-cuffs). I was not affected at all by the last minute changes and no-shows so I pretty much knew what I was getting.

But I thought when I took a day off work to "relax" and get autographs, I wouldnt put in ten hour day. I was wrong. I got to FanFest at 8am and left at 6pm. Very workman-like. It was what I chose to subject myself to, so only I am to blame. But I would do it again. Maybe next year?

I will be spreading out my haul over the next few days to keep everyone on the edge of their seats. It will also give me time to actually compile the posts. Hope all graphers fared well and with that I bid you good-night.


  1. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet up with you today but I feel like I put in some overtime too. I got up at 6 this morning and just got home at about 10. I'll be showing off my goods over the next week or so to keep up some suspense too. I look forward to seeing what you got!

  2. I was with Ryan the whole time and I just rolled into town around 1AM. I'm exhausted. I'll be following you guys and posting my stuff over the course of 'however long it takes...'

  3. Long day is right. Nice to catch up with you, Kirk!
