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.

Spoke Too Soon

Looks like I jumped the gun with the last post. Successes have ground to a complete halt these past 10 days. Normally a holiday for the Postal Service means a bundle for me the following today. You know what I got today? The big squadoosh.

But all is not lost. Before my vacation last week I had one success, one.

Jim Hoey 2006 Upper Deck #1020

This puppy made the trip all the way from Bowie in just about three weeks. For the BaySox, Hoey is having a good year in the pen, appearing in 11 games with a sub 4.00 ERA. During his 2006-07 stint with the big club, things went slightly different. Hoey was largely ineffective in 35 games and gave up just under one run a game. Hopefully he can regain his 2007 minor league form where he was barely hittable, pitching in 40 games while allowing on four runs.

I am sorry for the lack of posts, I was hoping in person graphing, trades and 50/50's would fill any void in TTM. I was wrong. Work continues to crush my soul, making it difficult to grab lunch, let alone leave with enough time to make it to the park. My goal of more in person graphing this year is slowly fading to black.

  1. Glad to hear from you man, I like to track your successes to see who might sign TTM to help me out too. Good luck getting to the Yard.
