Trade With The Great Orioles Autograph Project

Trading with a fellow Orioles collector is tough to do, especially since they're bound to want the cards you are trying to keep. Fortunately, that was not the case with this trade between myself, and Orioles Magic, of the Great Orioles Autograph Project. All he was looking for were some Orioles autographs he didn't yet have in his stable. Fortunately, I was able to accommodate, and scored three new Markakii in the process.

2006 Bowman Heritage Mini Nick Markakis
These are nicely sized mini cards. Not too small, but small enough to be considered "mini".

2008 Upper Deck Nick Markakis game worn jersey (with stain!)

I don't care if that's a wing sauce stain from team night at Hooters, it's still awesome!

2008 Topps Finest gold refractor #'d/50

For some reason, this didn't scan like a refractor, but I swear it is!

I want to thank Orioles Magic for the sweet new Markakii, and for a great trade all around. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a football game to watch. The Chiefs are about to get scalped in Baltimore!

Oh, and one last thing, I TOTALLY CANNOT WAIT FOR GOODWIN CHAMPIONS TO BE RELEASED! There are 2 boxes already on pre-order, and they need to get here already!


  1. Those are some sweet Markakii! When I read the title in the thumbnail I thought "Now how do two Orioles collectors make a trade?" Its good that you guys play nice... Nice score. I am already counting the days till February when the Orioles start trickling in to their new spring home...

  2. Nice Finest Markakis.
