I enjoy seeing/reading about theme collections. Good Luck.
You may not have tried to narrow down this far yet, but unfortunately a full 501 Crown/Coke signed card set will be impossible. Just quickly browsing the list I noticed a half dozen or so players who died before the card set was issued, including Jerry Adair, Vern Bickford, Billy Cox, Jim Finigan, Erv Palica, Del Rice & Dizzy Trout. I suspect there will be a few others as well. The good news is that you'll be that much closer to a possible set.
And I just noticed you do have an "alive player" count. Are there that many deceased so far??? WOW!
Great website! Good luck with your collection! Do you only want them in Orioles Uni or any? I have auto's of these 2 players not on the list
Jack Cust (Pictured in Diamondbacks)
Sean Henn (Pictured in Yanks)
Here are the details of the cards:
2001 Donruss Class of 2001 Jack Cust #163 /1875
2007 Fleer Ultra #225 Sean Henn /349
Ever come across his blog before? I've worked out some deals with him in the past.
I'm also still working on my Orioles autograph collection. I've got over 500 different players now including autos of guys who have no Orioles cards. From the looks of things, we are doing pretty much exactly the same project...collect as many different Orioles autographs possible, with as many of those also being on Orioles Crown cards as possible.
I'd love to work out a deal to help each other out.
