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.

Addition By Waiting

Brandon Snyder made his major league debut tonight in a 6-3 win versus the Detroit Tigers. Now I can finally put this card into my collection.

Brandon Snyder 2006 Bowman Sterling #BSP-BS

I added this card when I first started collecting Orioles autographs. I had just started going after anything I could get my hands on, not having a roster handy. Anything that said Orioles on it and was signed I tried to grab. Once I got the roster together I realized my error, but held on to this one and a few others just in case.

Tonight was just that case. Snyder debuted in the bottom of the ninth inning as a defensive replacement for Corey Patterson who pinch ran for Jake Fox. Koji Uehara retired the side 1, 2, 3 in the inning, recording two fly outs and a strikeout. At first base, Snyder was not involved in the ninth in any way, not even during the throw-around following the K. However, he is now officially a major leaguer and immortalized forever in the baseball almanac. As well as this blog. Welcome Brandon.
