Lopes and Lopez

David Earl Lopes is one of my all time favorite players, so I was very happy when he was the Padres first base coach for awhile.  Davey is one quarter of the Dodgers longtime infield of Garvey, Cey, Russell and Lopes.  He played for 16 years and has managed the Brewers from 2000-2003.  I got this signed through the mail while Davey was managing the Brewers.  He is currently the first base coach for the Phillies. Luis Manuel (Santos) Lopez played three seasons for the Padres before playing for the Mets, Orioles, Brewers and Reds.  He is currently the hitting coach for the Greenville Drive, single A affiliate of the Red Sox.  I bought this card from eBay.
