Autograph pictures from my trip

As I try to catch up on work, and life in general, after my trip I want to make sure I get back to posting regularly (whatever that might be). Pictures of the Orioles playing at the Skydome are forthcoming. And I do know that it's now officially called the Rogers Centre, but I definitely prefer calling it the Skydome.

In the meantime, here are most of the Orioles autographs that I was able to get in Toronto. I love going to O's road games since it is so much easier to get autographs from the Birds. These are presented more or less in order of how much I like the players, and/or whether or not I already have their autographs.

While I'm OK with the Gregg Zaun trade, I was not prepared for it, so didn't have my Moeller cards on the trip with me. I got him on this cool O-Pee-Chee Orioles checklist. But Bad Chad surprising me like that!

Felix finally signed for me at a game.

Berky got the win on Friday, which is the only reason he is ranked this high. I ran into his cousin before that game; he seemed like a really nice guy. And don't get the wrong idea, I don't know Berken but his cousin said hi since I was wearing my Orioles gear.

Dino continued to be a good signer, and to look tough in all pictures taken of him.

Guthrie signed but seems to like to mess with some of the fans by telling them he will sign and then running away multiple times.

Finally an in-person success with "The Crow"!

Also my first time getting Brian Bass in-person. I think Toronto was a good luck charm for me.

Probably the best signer on the team, LUUUKE signed for everyone, and some of their mothers.

This isn't the first time Melmo signed for me, but it is the first time this season.

Ty finally signed this card; his first in an Orioles uniform.

"Claw" signed for me! He has moved down a little on my favorite O's list as he keeps giving up runs but this is an awesome action shot of him pitching!

I think that this is now my favorite Jonesy autograph. What a great looking card.

Nolan was signing and let's just say that Kalina was a little bit happy about that.

But Wiety signed too! And I was very happy about that!
It's the first time I got him to sign since he was promoted to the O's in late May.
He signed all three days of the series too.

So, to wrap up this post; I highly recommend that, if you love the Orioles and getting them to sign things for you, you should hit the road with the team sometime. They are much more likely to sign since there are many fewer O's fans than in Baltimore and it's always cool to check out other ballparks.

I wish that I had that much luck when they were in KC. Granted, I only went to one game. But all I got were Wigginton, Zaun, Trembly, and Samuel. Uehara and Guthrie signed, but not where I was. Maybe I didn't get as many because I don't love the O's ;)

Looks like you had a great trip.

I have to agree that the Adam Jones card is awesome looking!! Great haul!

Thanks guys! I did have a great trip and all of the autos only made it better. If you are ever looking to trade or need anyone for your collection, most of these cards aren't my first autographs of these guys.
