Bruce Howard, 1991 Crown/Coca-Cola All-Time Orioles #205

Did you know that Bruce Howard...

-Is the only player in major league history whose hometown is Salisbury, MD?

-Is the father of former utility infielder David Howard (.229 career AVG), who the Royals protected in the 1992 Expansion Draft in lieu of slugger Jeff Conine?

-Was traded to the Orioles in a November 1967 deal that sent Luis Aparicio back to Chicago and brought leadoff hitter extraordinaire Don Buford to Charm City?

Well, now you know.

Max - Go Joe!

Pete - I saw that. I have a few of the cards on that list, including the Upper Deck Griffey.
