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.

Weekend Off to a Rocky Start

The O's have been in a tail spin since the beginning of the season. I was hoping a trip out West would help the team regroup and come together as a club. It seems as though this was not in the cards. They have dropped the first two games in Oakland, including another ninth inning loss on Saturday and have lost nine straight games. I will always have faith in the team, but if injuries continue to pile up this could be a difficult season.

On a happier not, yet still Rocky, I have another addition to the collection.

Rocky Cherry 2007 Topps '52 #126

After being traded from Chicago with Scott Moore in 2007, Cherry appeared in 28 games over the next two seasons. He was ineffective as a stopper in the bullpen recording an ERA above 7.00. After the 2008 campaign he was selected by the Mets in the Rule 5 draft, but never made the big club. He pitched for Portland (Padres) and Pawtucket (Red Sox) in AAA last year.
