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.

Thrice Harper

Wifey decided giving birth to our son was a good enough anniversary present for me.  I would have agreed if new baseball product wasn't on the market.  So, I forced her hand a threw a blaster of Bowman in the shopping cart at Target.  I hid it below the infant clothes and baby gas drops.  Sneaky. Sneaky.

The first four packs I opened had these:

Bryce Harper Bowman Chrome Prospects (x2)
Bryce Harper Bowman Prospects
Yu Darvish Bowman SP Rookie

Bowman Gold Allen Craig #57
Bowman Gold Ian Desmond #115
Bowman Gold Lucas Duda #171
Bowman Gold Dan Haren #37
Bowman Gold Desmond Jennings #136
Bowman Gold Cory Luebke #130
Bowman Gold Brian McCann #70
Bowman Gold Jimmy Rollins #80
Bowman Silver Ice Vance Worley #105

And the best card of the box, not for trade.
Adam Jones 2012 Bowman International #45
Such a gorgeous card.  This is going at the top of the IP list.  Hopefully when I get to a game this year, this bad boy will come back with some blue scribble across the front.  Everything else is available, just let me know.


  1. Nice Pull on the Jones International. I wonder if he will be asked to play for Team USA in next years WBC?

  2. I dont see why not, but would he want to play?
