Type Site: Eutaw Street Cardboard

Quick shout-out to #5 site follower Kirk, a man dedicated to collecting at least one autographed card of every player to don the Baltimore uniform. He's written regularly about this search since 2009 at Eutaw Street Cardboard and recently crested 75% of known Orioles, an amazing 672 different guys.

My own player collection includes former Oriole and great glove man David Segui, so you know that this March 2010 post with five (!) signed cards caught my eye. Segui's apparently a good signer and Kirk added a note about his in-person courtesy.

Segui is a great signer. I went 5 for 5 this time with the Crown card in the mix. In my requests I stress the importance of the Crown card to my collection and ask for it to be signed above all else. Segui actually read my letter before signing and the Crown card is without his usual inscription MATT 16:26. After all of my bitching last week it seems there are players out there that do take the time. My faith has been restored.

Visit Eutaw Street Cardboard to see (plenty) more autographs and Baltimore Orioles cards or check his "Vault" section to spin a trade.
