1981 Donruss, Al Bumbry
#355 Al Bumbry
Back in April, I received a card package from Oriole super-autograph collector Ryan, from The Great Orioles Autograph Project. In it were some Royals cards and a myriad of autographed cards, including two cards from the '81 Donruss set. This is obviously one of those cards.
Al played in the Majors for fourteen years and all but one were with the O's. He was the 1973 American League Rookie of the Year when he hit for a career-high .337 and lead the league with 11 triples. He played in two World Series with Baltimore and made one All Star team. His All Star nod came in 1980 when he hit .318 with career-highs in home runs (9) and RBI (53).
For his career, Al was a .281 hitter with 54 dingers. Of the 54 home runs, 5 were hit off of Catfish Hunter.
