Back to the trade that I wrote about in my previous post. These are the non-Crown signed cards that I received in the trade.
Way back in July 2009, I purchased a Donruss Greats certified autograph of Dwight's, but he was wearing a Red Sox uniform in the card. Almost all of Dwight's cards and I think all of his certified autographs picture him with the Sawx, but it makes sense as he spent 19 of his 20 MLB seasons in Boston, and only the 1991 season with the O's. So for the past year and a half, I've been on the lookout for a signed Orioles card. And now I have one, and he's wearing an orange uniform to boot. I like orange uni's, if you didn't know.
Thank goodness for this card; if not for it, Izzy's autograph would be much harder to track down. It's not a great looking card, but it's perfect for me, as he doesn't have any cards showing him in an Orioles uniform. He doesn't seem to sign TTM requests, and hasn't played professionally since 2003, so this card is likely going to be a permanent member of my collection.
Izzy played with the A's from 1996-98 and appeared in a single game for the Orioles in 2002, going 1-3 with a run scored. He's somehow not related to the catching Molina brothers (Bengie, Jose &Yadier), nor former Oriole catcher Gustavo Molina. At this point, I think that somewhere there must be a compound of people, all with the last name of Molina, whose sole purpose is to procreate and produce baseball catchers. I can't be wrong, can I?
