Orlando McFarlane | 1962 Topps Baseball Card (#229 | Checklist ) | Baseball Almanac Collection

Did you know the Orlando McFarlane rookie baseball card (above) used Jesus McFarlane on the front & back? Orlando McFarlane was used after that and the last Topps he appeared on (1967) while playing said, "Orlando proved to be a most valuable back-up man behind the plate for Detroit in 1966. A good runner, he stole twenty-five bases for three different minor league ball clubs. Orlando's cat-like reflexes behind the plate installs his confidence in rookie and veteran pitchers. He's a poised performer. Dealt to the Angels in 1967."
Orlando McFarlane Magazine Story
Orlando McFarlane | Ebony Magazine | June 1964 | Page 34

In 1967, Orlando McFarlane took the field wearing #48 , the first CALIFORNIA Angels player to use the number in a regular season game. The franchise changed their name from the Los Angeles Angels to the California Angels on September 2, 1965 (during the regular season), and Don Lee was wearing the number that year (making him the last LA Angels to wear it), but he had been traded to the Houston Astros that June.
