Nearing The End of My Orioles Autographs

I've alluded to this a time or two in some of my posts over the past few months, but I'm at the point where I have displayed a vast majority of my Orioles autographs. Since sharing, and writing about, those autographs was the reason I started this blog, you can see that I'm in a quandary about how to proceed with this little blog. Many of the autographs that are still in my "not-yet-posted" folders feature players that I frankly don't have much to say about. This could change as some new autographs join my collection and/or once I start to get in-person autographs during the season.

But for now, I'm left with many Midre Cummings-type players and autographs. Now, I don't mean anything personal against Midre or any of the other remaining players, but I just don't have much to say about them for one reason or another. Many of them put together solid MLB careers (Midre played in 11 seasons between 1993-2005) but I personally don't have much to add about them.

For example, I'm not a big fan of this logo-less Signature Rookies autograph, and Midre played in a mere 2 games for the O's in 2005. And that's all I have to say. Not very interesting right?

But not to worry, I will continue to post the remaining autographs that have yet to make an appearance here. I mean, I don't want any of the 942 men who have played for the O's to be short-changed after all. And I promise to keep my belly-achin' to a minimum in those posts. Nobody likes a whiner.

Also, Orioles FanFest is coming up in about a week and a half as well, so that will give me some fresh autographs to write about too. And then Spring Training and the regular season aren't all that far off, so even if my posting isn't as regular as it once was, I don't intend to entirely fade away. The Orioles debut enough new players each season to keep me busy with tracking down their autographs, if nothing else.

Congratulations on this truly impressive project nearing its completion. Even when you're not posting, it is going to be a fantastic resource for fans and collectors.
