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.

Being Called Out

Everyone knows Fuji and his contest.  When he asks for participation, the blog-o-sphere answers.  When he asked for a question I thought I had a quick way to earn a point in his contest.  I didn't think he would put me on the spot, forcing my own question back at me.

No one card came to mind.  I had to rack my brain and my collection to come up with a response.

Then I saw it, a card I am actually trying to sell.

Cal Ripken/Jim Palmer/Rick Dempsey
The odd thing is that I was a huge Cal Ripken collector, forever.  Yet I bought this card when I was collecting anything and everything Rick Dempsey.  I paid $75 for it on eBay a bunch of years ago.  Probably why my asking price had been refused a few times.  It is still available if anyone is interested, check it all out here.

  1. Sorry I called you out bro... but I'll tell you the same thing I tell my students: I do it, because I care. :-)

    And why would you try to sell a card with those three guys' autographs on it?
