Orioles Relic Card Awesomeness

What more can I say… I love game used relic cards (of Orioles)! Something about having a part of a bat, jersey, etc. that was used or worn by the player is cool. I know some people think that they are over done and there are too many of them. But I find each one exciting. I have a lot of Brian Roberts and Nick Markakis relic cards, however now I have turned most of my attention to the Champion Orioles of the past (Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr.). I can only imagine the excitement on my son’s face when he sees all the Oriole Hall of Fame relic/ autographed cards that I acquired for him. However that will be a while before he gets old enough to understand baseball and baseball cards. But man is it fun creating a great collection to pass down one day!

I got all the following in the mail recently and thought I would share the images…
