- #129T – Earl Weaver [1985 Topps] (JT sez: It makes me sad that the 1985 Topps blog is almost finished. The first card was posted way back in 2012, and it has been great following along with Greg as he wrote about every card in the entire set and now the Traded series. Only three more cards to go!)

Earl Weaver managed the Baltimore Orioles from 1968 to 1982 and again in 1985 and 1986. His teams won four AL pennants and defeated the Big Red Machine in the 1970 World Series. Weaver was well known for his fiery disposition on the field, often getting in umpires’ faces while arguing calls.
(August 14, 1930 – January 19, 2013)
Former Baltimore Orioles manager and Hall of Famer Earl Weaver passed away this morning while on an Orioles fantasy cruise of an apparent heart attack.
Five players, one manager, and one player/manager, all Hall of Famers, have been honored with the retirement of uniform #4.
Paul Molitor, Milwaukee Brewers
The ease with which Molitor was voted into Cooperstown surprised me because I never considered him a Hall of Famer during his career. Yes, he had a .306 career average, and yes, he collected more than 3000 hits. But he never struck me as a Hall of Famer until after he was elected and I went back and looked at his career again.
