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.

Feeling Lucky: 1982 Edition

The last time I had busted a vintage pack of cards, it wasn't vintage at all.  It was new, fresh exciting and it was probably 1987.My brother has been a little more adventurous in his pack ripping.

Recently he picked up a bunch of older packs from somewhere and had some good luck.  He has been working on the 1978 Topps set and was hoping to pull an Eddie Murray RC in good condition. He did.

 He snagged a 1982 Topps rack pack for my birthday, hoping I could do the same with a Ripken RC.

It was my birthday, I was feeling lucky and I though it could happen.  It did not.

I don't know if these are the best cards from the bunch, but I thought they were cool.

The Fisk is pretty damn sweet.  I got  thrill from opening up some old school, even if it didn't pan out.


  1. Do you need autos of Mike Wright or Rocky Cherry

  2. Breaking a pack is always an did well.

  3. I LOVE that Fisk card. Super sweet! Too bad you didn't pull a Ripken.

    BTW I thought of another Oriole auto you need quest after... sorta. I think your collection will be incomplete with out a signed 8x10 from Tom Selleck in an Orioles uniform when he was in the celebrity Home Run Derby at Camden Yards. He was the only one to hit one out!

  4. The Selleck is sweet looking piece. If I spent $85 on it, it would be the highest priced single autograph in my collection. It would have to come back down to earth. Real bad.
