Some Additions to the Vlad Orioles Collection
One year ago, I was excited that the Orioles had signed Vlad, bringing one of my favorite non-Orioles to become to be a member of my favorite team. It seems like there is very little chance that Vlad comes back to Baltimore this year, but I enjoyed his 2011 season in Birdland.
I've slowly been accumulating some more of Vlad's Orioles cards. I haven't extensively collected any current players for quite some time, and it's amazing to see the number of parallels that are out there. Almost every one of his cards has a handful of variations to chase, but it makes things interesting. My favorite of these three is the Gypsy Queen green parallel, and I'm sure that most of you know this but the picture is recessed and the green forms a border around it. Cool stuff.
