Roberto Alomar, 1997 Pinnacle New #102
Somewhere in the excitement of the past week, I neglected to mention that Roberto Alomar was voted into the Orioles' Hall of Fame. While the well-traveled second baseman spent only three seasons in Baltimore, he made them count. Alomar was a three-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove award winner, and a one-time Silver Slugger award winner in his time in Charm City. His batting line with the O's was .312/.382/.480, with 50 home runs and 210 RBI. Roberto also has the rare honor of belonging to the Orioles' Hall of Fame, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame (the one in Cooperstown, don'tcha know). That's probably the second-most important Triple Crown in baseball.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
