A Tippy Martinez trading card signed in black ink
Trading/sports card signed: "Tippy Martinez", in black ink, 2½x3½. Felix "Tippy" Martinez (b. 1950) was a mainstay of the Baltimore Orioles bullpen for over a decade (1976-1986). He also played for the Yankees (1974-1976) and Twins (1988). Martinez was an All-Star in 1983, the year the O's won a World Championship. That same year, southpaw Martinez starred in a bizarre game. Entering a game against the Blue Jays in the tenth inning with runners on base, Martinez saw outfielders playing 2B and 3B for the Orioles, with an infielder behind the plate. Manager Earl Weaver had exhausted his bench with pinch hitters. Martinez found a solution: he picked three runners off base, and the Orioles went on to win in the bottom half of the inning! Although no official record seems to exist for this, it's unlikely any other Major League pitcher has secured all three outs in an inning by pick-offs. Signature slightly smeared and scuffed, but clearly legible. Corners and edges slightly worn. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
