Orioles Card

An intersection of two of my passions: baseball cards and the Baltimore Orioles. Updated daily? Let's hope. Each day I'll post a scan of one of my Orioles cards and allow my thoughts on said card to pour out. It might be childhood memories, an anecdote from the player's career, or musings on the aesthetics of the card. (Larry Sheets' mustache is fair game.) Ideally, this blog will be a companion piece to my Orioles Uniform Number site, NumerOlogy.

The Great Orioles Autograph Project

My goal is to eventually have a signed Orioles baseball card of every modern era player to have played in a game for my favorite team. When they do not have a card in an O's uniform or any card at all, I will try to get any autograph available. The project is huge and might be impossible to complete, but hey, it sounds like fun to me!

1969 Topps

In 2007 I returned to collecting trading cards again since stopping at the age of 13 in 1994.

Now, I've decided to complete the 1969 Topps set with a good start of about a third of the set.
