now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
dwyer had bounced around quite a bit in his career, but found some stability in baltimore.  in all, he was with the orioles for 7+ seasons before moving on to minnesota.  dwyer didn't do a whole lot for the o's in '81 (although he did hit a walk-off home run in late september), but he proved to be a valuable part in 1982 and their world championship team in 1983, for whom he hit .375, including a home run, in the 1983 world series.

voici à vous, 1981 jim dwyer!
