The National Has Officially Arrived in Baltimore

And I'm happier than Kiko Garcia in 1979
I spent a few hours at the show yesterday and found a number of autographs that I needed for my collection, including a few deceased players and some others who are still alive but never sign, thus making them almost as difficult to get as those players who have passed away.  But seriously, there are like a thousand dealers at the show.  I've never seen anything like it and plan on spending another day or two there.

Interesting note- Kiko was once traded to the Astros for Chris Bourjos, who never appeared for the Orioles, but is the father of current Angels CF and top prospect, Peter Bourjos, who made his MLB debut against the Orioles on Tuesday and collected his first Big League hit against the O's yesterday.  Weird right?  Where else are you going to read something like that?

Aaron-
That's gotta be tough to be away from cards for that long, I hope that everything is going well for you so far. I was able to get something for you though. I might be there Saturday or Sunday, not sure yet. I'll shoot you an email.
