Rolling on the C's

I have some pictures and autographs from last night's O's-Twins game and alumni autograph signing but haven't scanned them yet. Hopefully I will get to that later tonight.

Without further ado, here are some more of the "C" Orioles' autos that I have:

Raul Chavez 2006
I got this card signed this past Spring Training when Raul was in the Blue Jays camp.
I think I was the only person who knew who he was and was happy to have had this card with me, since it is his only Orioles card, too bad the black sharpie blended in to the black background.

Bruce Chen 04-06
I bought this card on Ebay but have a funny story about Bruce.
I remember O's Fanfest ('05 I think) and Bruce was standing in the convention center lobby, looking lost. It was hilarious, as hundreds of fans were standing in long lines to get player autographs while one of the players was right next to them, totally out in the open. He was a very nice guy and signed for a bunch of fans once we figured out who he was.

Howie Clark 2002, 2006

Ivanon Coffie 2000

Jeff Conine 1999-2003, 2006
"Niner" was always one of my favorite players every year that he was on the team.
He had a dry sense of humor and seemed to be well-liked by teammates.
Definitely an O's HOFer in my book.

I remember watching Ivanon Coffie play in the Atlantic League last year. He seemed like a really nice guy. I've never seen a non-minor league team set issue card of him before.
