John Lowenstein, 1982 Topps #747
Congratulations are due for Melvin Mora, John Lowenstein, and Gary Roenicke, the three newest members of the Orioles Hall of Fame. It's only fitting that both members of the great Baltimore outfield platoon of the late 1970s and early 1980s will be inducted together, and of course Melvin Mora's decade in Baltimore (.280/.355/.438, 158 HR, 662 RBI, two All-Star appearances) is worthy of recognition as well. If you'd like to hear the acceptance speeches of Melvin and Gary (Brother Lo has a previous commitment and cannot attend), be sure to show up early for the August 14 game at Camden Yards against the Athletics.
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.
