1989 Topps Major League Debut #94: John Orton
PHOTO: I like that we can see that Orton is really using his own bat, judging by the matching #14s on the knob and on his back.
STAT: Orton had 4 career homers, and surprisingly half of them have cards in this set: Wilson Alvarez and Jaime Navarro. Of course, I've also posted cards for Tim Leary and Shawn Hillegas before.
ANAGRAM: John Orton = Jot on horn
Part of 5 seasons in the bigs totaling fewer than 500 plate appearances. I guess McKaskill was wrong (see card back below.)
