The 1983 World Champion Baltimore Orioles. This is as good as it has got for the Orioles fans, well, at least through 2010. The 1997 Orioles matched this teams record, but didn't win a World Series. After losing out to the Brewers to make the playoffs in 1982 on the last game of the season, they pretty easily won the AL East in the 1983 season and upset the more favored White Sox in the playoffs to get their first World Series appearance since losing to the Pirates in 1979. This was the first season without Earl Weaver as manager since 1968.
Best Player: Cal Ripken
Best Pitcher: Scott McGregor
All-Stars: Tippy Martinez, Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken
Rookie Card of the Year: Storm Davis
Storm Davis went on to have a lengthy career playing with the Orioles, A's, Royals, Padres, and Tigers through 1994 compiling a 113-96 career record.
Other Rookie Cards: Glenn Gulliver, Leo Hernandez, John Shelby
First Orioles cards (other than rookie cards): Joe Altobelli, Aurelio Rodriguez
Most interesting non-Topps card: Bobby Bonner
Bonner had the unfortunate timing of coming up as a shortstop through the Orioles chain at the same time as Cal Ripken. He did appear on Ripken's multi-player rookie card in the 1982 Topps set, and his own card in the 1982 Donruss set and the 1983 Fleer set. That would be all the cards commemorating Bonner's career in the majors, as he was done after 1983.
Other Note: Tito Landrum spent time with the Orioles and Cardinals, and is shown as a Cardinal in his Topps card. He was traded to the Orioles on August 31, so he had no Oriole cards in the traded set, but he appeared in more games with the Orioles, so I am placing him on the Oriole checklist.
