The brains behind a quick surge that propelled the Orioles to baseball supremacy just over a decade into their existence, former skipper/general manager Paul Richards is far too often overlooked for his role in catapulting the Birds to prominence. Here is the original artwork used for the production of Richards’ 1961 Topps Baseball #131 card. Mounted to a thick stock backing of 4-3/8 x 6-5/8”, a color likeness of the reigning AP and UPI Manager of the Year includes a background of bleachers and blue sky (while the actual card was to use a simple blue-white-and-red background design). Accompanying is a (NM) 1961 Topps Baseball #131 card.
