That being said, Mr. October spent only the '76 season in Baltimore. This was between his years in Oakland and his time with the Yankees. He had a good season at the plate, leading the league in slugging and OPS and finished 16th in MVP voting. One of his seven Sports Illustrated covers features him in an Orioles uniform looking happy enough.
Even though I'm not a fan of his, I needed his autograph for my collection. There aren't many cards of Reggie in an Orioles uniform, so this 1988 Score card recapping his one season with the Birds is perfect. However, the back of this card only touches on his time with the O's, spending most of its' 5 or so paragraphs talking about Reggie's time with the Yankees. Gee, thanks Score.
It also helps that he is wearing the awesome orange uni in the picture on the card. I found it on the bay for a decent price and jumped at the opportunity. I think that Reggie was the last member of the HOF that I still needed for my O's collection.
If any readers have a reason that I shouldn't dislike Mr. October, please leave a comment and we can discuss from there.
