Ronny Paulino Takes Me Back to 100%

Ronny Paulino had been the only new Orioles whose autograph I needed, but that situation was remedied over the weekend. I had purchased a "lot" of Orioles signed postcards and the seller included this bonus Paulino autograph. It was a very unexpected surprise and I was really happy to add Ronny to my collection. I will say that his signature certainly leaves something to be desired but this matches up well with other examples I've seen.

Paulino became the 914th Oriole when he debuted in the second game of the season, and he has started the season off very well. He's hitting .360 over seven games, which is pretty amazing for a back-up catcher!

I would still like to get his signature in-person, but this fills a need in my collection for now.

I can't believe your collection is complete. That is unreal. I know you have already added the new guys, but it's really astonishing. Congrats.

Thanks, I probably put too much time and effort into it, but I'm happy with how it ended up.
