Well… since it has been awhile since I last posted, I have pick up a few Game Used Orioles cards to add to the Personal Collection. I have noticed something while comparing all 6 cards, why do some just say game used memorabilia and others state what the fabric was part of (Jersey, pant, etc.)? It is not a big deal, but I think it adds to the overall appeal of the card if you can state that it is a Jersey card or a Pant card. Enough about that, on to the cards.

First is a 2009 Upper Deck Piece of History Box Score Memories Nick Markakis game used memorabilia (29/180) BSM-NM

  • I have no interests in collecting the Pieces of History set, but I do like Nick Markakis game used cards.

  • This is by far one of my favorite Upper Deck products! I love the feel of the cards and the design (layout and pictures). If Upper Deck was to come out with this product again, I think it would help their sales this year. Most of the Upper Deck products I have seen this year, I have no interest in collecting. Topps is definitely the better company this year.

  • One of my favorite cards for two reasons, first it states that the fabric is from a jersey and second it states the following… “It’s unfortunate that Roberts has not had an opportunity to show his stuff in the spotlight of a postseason series, but there may be no more effective lead-off hitter the American League. His on-base percentage neared .400 in 2007; after years in the 20s and 30s, he reached 40 stolen bases; and he’s nearly a lock to top 50 extra-base hits annually.” (from back of card)

  • All I can say about this card is… What was Upper Deck thinking? It is a bad picture of Brian Roberts, he just looks weird. And on top of that, the “Game-Used Memorabilia” does not even fill the entire window on the card. But it is an Oriole card and as much as I don’t like this card, I will be adding it to all the others in the Personal Collection.

On a side note, What a game last night! 12-5 VICTORY over the Yankees, I would like that every game. Let us see if Koji and the O’s defeat the Yankees today and win the series.
