A Contest and New Successes!!!

There is a ST contest going on at The Great Orioles Autograph Project. You pick a team in ST who you think will have the best record, the winner will win his/her choice of different card, autographs etc. It gets even better if you link to his blog on your blog, or if you are a follower of his blog (or both) Check it out for a chance to win.

Today I received two Spring Training TTM Successes and a purchase from a member on Let's begin...

Dennis Sarfate signed one card in black sharpie c/o The Baltimore Orioles ST in 11 days. Dennis was acquired by the Orioles in late 2007 in the miguel Tejada trade, and after an injury shortened 09, he was DFA'd to make room for Miggi. I was happy to hear that he cleared waivers and was invited to ST. The reason, I had one card of him that I really wanted signed. I am rooting for Dennis to land a spot in the crowded Orioles bullpen.

Count me as a person who though the Sherrill/Bell trade was bittersweet. I like Bell, but I wish we didnt have to trade George, because Flat Breezy was a well liked fan favorite. I still had some unsigned cards of George that I wanted to get signed, so I sent to him. George Sherrill signed one card in black sharpie c/o The LA Dodgers ST in 11 days.

Last year, I made a project to collect at least one autograph from every player and coach that wore an Orioles uniform in 2009. I plan to do the same thing in 2010. I like to have autographs of guys that were ST invites and wo could surprise and make the team or be called up do to injury. So this is where Jeff Salazar comes in. Jeff is an Orioles ST invitee, an will probably play at AAA Norfolk this year, but he may be a callup in September, so I like to have it as security and to add another new 'graph to my collection. Jeff Salazar 2007 Topps Heritage in blue sharpie c/o purchase.
Later today I may post the other 2010 graphs I have received prior to this blog.
