Item Received: 2009 Topps Heritage, 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter.  Both signed in black Sharpie.

Chris Tillman has been one of the Orioles' top prospects for a few years now.  He opened the season in their rotation this year and got off to wonderful start by firing six no-hit innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.  He was not able to maintain momentum from that first start and was returned to AAA Norfolk at the end of May.  He's still down there, pitching decently, and still figures to be a fixture in the O's starting rotation.
