I was slammed for work, so I didn't get a lot of time to sort, but luckily, I still had a ton of Orioles cards that I had sat aside for the Norfolk exhibition game in March. I took those stacks, then supplemented them with a few Orioles alumni that I thought may come.
I also met up with my good friend, Michael, and he showed me the ropes of graphing at Camden Yards. He helped me outside the stadium, inside at the field, and up in the club level. One of the biggest autos I was able to get was this Jonathan Schoop. It turned out really nice, especially since I didn't get a chance to prep the card beforehand. I was really lucky that the auto suck with this one. I was able to get him to sign it at his car, along with a ton of other folks. I appreciate that his wife was so gracious as to let us hand the cards inside the car to him.
So, with this trip, I netted 1,016 signed cards on the season. I think this was an awesome way to close it out and officially retire my graphing book for the winter. I'll fire it all up again for Fan Fest in January.
Burke (b. 1980) played in the majors from 2004 to 2009 for the Astros, Diamondbacks and Padres. He had 303 hits, 23 home runs and a .239 batting average.
I mailed to Burke on August 7 and got the cards back on September 14 (my birthday) for a 38-day TAT.

McMurtry (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1983 to 1986, 1988 to 1990 and 1995 for the Braves, Rangers and Astros. He had a career record of 28-42 with an ERA of 4.08 and 349 strike outs. He finished second in the 1983 NL Rookie of the Year Award voting (to Darryl Strawberry) and 7th in the NL Cy Young Award voting.
I mailed to McMurtry on August 7 and got the cards back on September 11 for a 35-day TAT.
I got some cool cards back from Glenn Hubbard, including the above 1989 Bowman. Personally, I never liked these cards, but now with my graphing that I'm doing, they really turn out quite well.
Hubbard (b.1957) has a birthday tomorrow and played in the majors from 1978 to 1989 for the Braves and A's. He had 1,084 hits, 70 home runs and a .244 batting average. He was an All Star in 1983.
Hubbard was released from his contract with the A's on July 31, 1989 and missed when they won the World Series that year.
I mailed to Hubbard on May 8 via the Lexington Legends and got the cards back on September 11, for a 126-day TAT.
