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.

Nope, I'm Not Dead

After taking four months off from blogging, I can't blame any one thing for my hiatus.  Hell, I can't blame any fifteen things, but I am back.

I am back to pay attention to the blogging community.  I am back to get involved in trading.  I am back to start crossing names off the needs list again.

I have truly missed this blog and the fun I had writing it, researching players and interacting with the community.  I am hoping to get back to regular posting.  I appreciate all of those that have not un-followed me yet. 

So for those patient enough to stick around for more than four months, I will not disappoint with my most recent addition.  Here is the star, the stud, the prize jewel of my collection.

Jason Pridie 2003 Topps #674

OK, not the crown jewel, but an addition none the less.  I received this in September, I think.  It was a trade from one of the sites I was on, which I don't remember.  It came from a person I don't know. Lots of unknown surrounding this guy.

What I do know, Pridie made his Oriole debut on September 25, 2013.  He appeared in four games as the Orioles finished off their heart wrenching campaign without Manny Machado.  Pridie was merely a stop gap and the team granted him free agency after the season. 

This is just the beginning as I am working on a few more posts to bring you back into the quest.


  1. Welcome back, man. I look forward to reading, and I have some Orioles hits here and there if you ever want to trade.

  2. Welcome back! Looking forward to reading your posts!

  3. DHoff-I will definitely take a look.

    Daniel-I hope to not disappoint.
