John Lowenstein, 1984 Fleer #10
John Lowenstein may be one of the premier clowns in Orioles history, but even he would have to tip his cap to Bob Uecker as the best of baseball's cutups. So it's only fitting that the Milwaukee Brewers are honoring "Uke" next month with his own statue at Miller Park...in the last row of the stadium. Uecker, a longtime play-by-play announcer for the Brewers, is clearly thrilled and honored, saying: "This will be great for fans and even better for pigeons."
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.
