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

Orioles FanFest Fail

2013 Orioles FanFest autograph vouchers went on sale Saturday morning at 10am.  I was in front of my laptop poised to make the selections that I needed to add to the collection.  What I was not counting on, more glitches with the ticket system. was unable to accommodate the volume at 10 am and for 10 minutes I received messages denying my purchase.  I tried multiple sessions and differing voucher quantities, with the same results.  Frustrated, I called customer service to see what could be done.  Never got through.

Finally, 20 minutes of clicking and clicking and I was able to purchase my first autograph session.  Just one.  There was no way to make one purchase for all sessions that were wanted.  In all I had to try and try again to make three separate purchases.  I bought the amount of sessions I wanted, but a glitch changed the time slot.  Doh.

30 minutes on hold again, only to find out nothing could be done with my wrong time slots.  Wonderful.

So, I need some help and have a few extra slots available.

Looking for:
Dylan Bundy
LJ Hoes
Jonathan Schoop
TJ McFarland
Zach Clark
Trayvon Robinson
Nate McLouth
Luis Ayala
Pedro Strop

I have these slots available for trade:
Kevin Gausman (x3)
Manny Machado (x2)
Jim Palmer (x2)
Darren O'Day (x2)
Ryan Minor (x2)
Taylor Teagarden (2)
Jason Hammel

I am open for trading slots or can also do consignment.  If interested just comment or email

  1. Shouldn't be hard to work something out with someone for those Machado vouchers, I know a lot of people were looking for them after they weren't able to get them. Somewhere around page 5 here people were looking for them:

    Also here on SCN:

    Somehow I was lucky enough to avoid all these glitches in the system I have heard about and score all the stations I wanted. I'm going to get my ALDS Scorecard signed by each player pictured on it and then have it matted and framed (unfolded) with each of my ALDS home game tickets. I knew fanfest was gonna be the only way to get guys like Markakis or Machado.

    Good luck, I'll see you there. Hoping to make it in the first 250 people for the early signing. I know those guys get there crazy early though. With the record sell out time for the vouchers it might not be worth it to even try. I guess we'll see.
