Craig Tatum, 2010 Orioles Postcards
I'm briefly coming up for air between the Orioles FanFest and an evening out with friends. Here's the first autograph that I collected today, trusty backup catcher Craig Tatum. "Tater" was the only featured player who I didn't have a card for, as it's hard for the role players to get their just due in card sets these days. Fortunately, the O's produce these postcard-sized prints for their players, coaches, and alumni to sign. I'm going to count this as a card. Craig's signature is fairly legible, and I appreciate that he included his uniform number. As for the card itself, it's a pretty nice action photo; the dude has a cannon for an arm.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
