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.

Collection Statistics

Total Players 877/977 = 89.25%
1991 Orioles Crown Set
Total Players 309/465 = 66.45%
Alive Players 274/369 = 74.25

Christmas Came Early

I have documented man times before that Wifey does not like baseball cards.  Especially purchasing them.  I am lucky to get a pack or two a year.  I am very happy that she and her father are nothing alike.

He visited earlier this month bearing gifts for The Kid, Wifey and I and I was shocked there was a gift specifically for me.  It was the first time in six years that they weren't all joint gifts.  Here is what I received:

Boog Powell 1962 Topps #99
Brooks Robinson 1959 Topps #439
Each one of these beauties fills a void in my Orioles vintage collections that has been long overlooked.  I had been thinking of liquidating that portion of my collection but these two cards have made me reconsider. 

These are most likely the only cards I receive for Christmas, couldn't be more pleased.
