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.

Postcards from the Edge

Just as I was on the edge of giving up, a blockbuster trade fell into my blog. Another local autograph collector who started to follow my blog took a look at my need list, and the rest is trading history. All told I gained 26 different autographs, 12 postcards, five upgrades and five deceased players. Not a bad score for only posting my blog.

Because I haven't received too many cards recently I am breaking the trade up into two posts. Enjoy the sights.

Dion, thanks again for the trade, any information on the years of the postcards as Beckett has stopped listing them under each player.

  1. Kirk,
    No idea on the years I always wished they had the years on them somewhere at least on the bottom on the back when they were printed or something would even work. Thanks, Dion
