#51 Orioles Leaders
Why this card is awesome: Isn't it obvious? Because you've got 2 HOFers for the price of 1 on the front! That bumps our count up to 9 so far in the set.
Cool stat: Remember the beginning of the 1988 season? The Orioles and Braves both started the year with long losing streaks. The Braves had a 10-game slide, although the Orioles' reached 21 games. Relive the glory by checking out their schedule here. If you scroll down a bit, you can see all those minus signs in a row. Maybe this explains why neither Murray nor Ripken looks very confident in the photo above.
Hall of Fame count: 9
