I look at veteran ballots as being for their whole career, manager, player, etc.
I agree with Rex, as a Manager, I'd vote for Lopez. But as a player, no chance.
I see that the actual 1977 veterans committee voted Lopez into the Hall for his contributions as a Manager. Thanks BobH for bringing this topic back up as I have amended my original ballot.

Joe Sewell and Pop Lloyd get my votes.
