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

A Six-Pack of Latin Flavor

I didn't plan it I swear. Just made two different trades that happened to only include 1990's cards of Latin American players. The only one of the signers with a halfway decent track record of signing is Armando Benitez, and even he is around 60%.

Armando Benitez 1995 Topps #346

Sid Fernandez 1995 Donruss #270

Chris Gomez 1993 Collector's Choice #110

Leo Gomez 1994 Score #55

Chito Martinez 1992 Triple Play #192

Fernando Tatis 1999 Pacific Paramount #196

I still need to get Leo Gomez and Chito Martinez on Orioles Crown cards, but when they sign at 9% and 16% respectively, I had to jump at any opportunity to make the additions. I also have a request of to Chris Gomez for a 2008 Topps Heritage card featuring him as an Oriole, so hopefully that longshot will come through. Tatis is still in the Majors, as a member of the Mets, and I am looking for someone to 50/50 him for me. I just bought up a bunch of base cards of players with limited exposure as a Bird in hopes of upgrading a few sigs in the collection.

Anyone graph the Mets and wanna help a brotha out?
