Centerfielder Steve Finley had the good fortune of starting his 19-season career with the beloved "Why Not?" Orioles who went from worst to nearly first in '89—the very same year as his Rawlings size 44 jersey with "Set 1 / 1989" tag. Finley later won 5 Gold Glove Awards and twice led the league in triples. Rocky Coppinger took the mound in Baltimore from 1996 to 1999. His Russell Athletic size 52 (2" extra length) jersey features a "1999" tag and number "7" memorial sleeve patch for Cal Ripken Sr. Light wear overall on both.
