Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Earl Weaver

Weaver

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.

R.I.P. Earl Weaver

(August 14, 1930 – January 19, 2013)

1969 Topps

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.

Retired Numbers: #4

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.
