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

Visitors To The Blog

The Cardinals have a reputation of being the Yankees of the National League regarding signing. What I saw, could not have been further from the truth.

Many Cadillacs and sedans made their way under the stadium, hiding visiting players from view. The handful that made their own transportation plans though, treated us fans well.

Matt Holliday signed for one person without slowing down and barely looked at the item. It could not have been a great signature.

Yadier Molina walked down the street pretending like he didn't speak English. It worked.

The rest of the club signed for every fan.

I traded an extra card of Jay for the Jakubauskas I got signed later. Very good move.
