New HOF Rookie

Here is another HOF Rookie I picked up recently, but its not a football one.

Its Michael Jack Schmidt!

Mike Schmidt, for those of you who don’t know, was the greatest all around third baseman ever. In his career with the Phillies, he hit 568 home runs and 10 gold glove awards. He was a three time NL MVP and went to 12 all star games. He was easily elected to the Hall in 1995. This is one of the iconic rookie cards of the 1970’s. I am thrilled to add this to my HOF collection!

    Nice. I’ve never even held one of these. Maybe one day I’ll stumble across one that fits my budget. Congratulations.
