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.

Jumping on the Ginter Train

This past week has been nerve racking. End of month with my company coupled with a promotional interview wore me out. The 100+ degrees didnt help things either. But it was worth it as I earned another promotion, my second within five months.

Unfortunately, my new position comes with a commute, an hour long one. Seeing as my furthest commute had been 12 minutes it will be a major change in the coming weeks. Wifey and I haved started the new home search already. I spent the afternoon looking at a few houses and driving all over Maryland. I was a good patient husband all day and I felt like a needed a reward.

Wal-Mart delivered seven rack packs, all they had left. I love how Ginter looks, it is such an awesome set, but I won't go nuts for it. All the weird inserts and ridiculous people (Corn Hole Guy) kinda get to me. I am a baseball collector only and I can never seem to move any of the abnormal stuff. Anyone in the market let me know?

Damn Yankees all over these packs. Gint-A-Cuffs would have scored only 32 pts for those interested in that kind of stuff. All are for trade.
