Jim Palmer Rookie and Dinner Program
Happy Birthday to the best pitcher to ever don an Orioles' uniform. Above is his Topps rookie card. Below is one of my favorite Palmer items, an autographed program from a dinner held in his honor after he retired.
The program is full of full page photos, quotes and highlights from Palmers playing days. I was lucky enough to have him sign it in silver on the cover and he wrote an inscription inside to me and my son who is named Jim Palmer in his honor.
