From Longest to Quickest!
Earlier last week I noted I had received my longest return to date. Well ironically enough, later in the week I received Lou Sleater back in 3 days! This actually ties with a previous success I had with Jay Gibbons back in 2004. Both were sent to Baltimore which explains the short turnaround time! Lou was a University of Maryland alum and finished out his career with the Orioles in 1958 appearing in 6 games.
The second success that came in this week from Spring Training in Arizona. Former Shorebird and Oriole David Hernandez. David signed my Shorebirds program from last season as well as two cards. David was part of the Mark Reynolds trade this offseason and is now with the Diamondbacks.
