Lou Piniella announces retirement

Lou Piniella announced his retirement at the end of the season today.   He's had a great career as a manager and a player.   He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1969 and won 2 World Series with the Yankees in 1977 and 1978.  

Who can forget the Cincinnati Reds of 1990 who defeated the heavily favored A's in the World Series in 4 games.  He also won AL Manager of the year in 1995 and again in 2001 when his Seattle Mariners won a record tying 116 games. 

For any card collector looking for a great card to remember Sweet Lou by look no further than his 1964 Topps rookie card.  Its a great card of a great player and manager.  Sweet Lou had a great career.
