Here's a colorful card creation of mine, a 1975 Topps card "updated" to show Ken Singleton as a member of the Baltimore Oriole after being traded to the "Birds" in December of 1974.
Take a look:
Sweet looking if I may say so!
After putting in five solid years with the New York Mets and Expos between 1970 and 1974, Singleton really stepped into his own once he put on the Oriole orange.
He would played the rest of his career there until he retired after the 1984 season.
It's easy to forget that he finished in the top-10 in M.V.P. voting four times during his career, even finishing second overall to Don Baylor in 1979 when he slammed 35 homers and drove in 111 runs.
By the time he wrapped up his 15-year career, he was named to three all-star teams, collected over 2000 hits, and hit 246 homers with 1065 runs batted in and a nifty .282 lifetime average.
Nowadays he can be seen on T.V. as one of the New York Yankee announcers, and he just seems like the nicest guy there is.
Singleton is aces in my book!
