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

The End of a Long Week

Work is a drag. I was stuck working another Saturday, all the while just looking forward to not being there. Spent the afternoon with the lovely wife, which eased the pain of a rough working week. When we got home, one success staring up at me. Not exactly what I was hoping for, I would have settled for six or so.

Today was:

Mike DeJean 2004 Topps Total #678

In just over two weeks I received this card and an identical twin from former Orioles reliever DeJean. Mike was signed as a free agent before the 2004 season, but his stay was short lived. After on 37 games and a high ERA, he was traded the the New York Mets for Karim Garcia. He thrived in New York, recording a 1.69 ERA to finish out the year.

In a weeks time I've made a decent dent my needs. I added 13 different players to the collection and crossed off another need from the Crown set. I am currently waiting on 30 plus TTM requests sent in the last month, so hopefully will have more to talk about.

My trading sites are treating me well still so I am counting on more additions that way. If anyone has anything they want to unload, I am always open for offers.
