Mike Schmidt

I got this great replica Mike Schmidt rookie card from Andrew at the great Traded Sets blog. I really hope he doesn't retire and instead does the Upper Deck high number set he has been hinting at. Andrew actually sent three of this card, so I have two to trade if anyone is interested.

Speaking of Iron Mike, here's another card of Schmidt that I have had for a while that I think is pretty cool. It is from the 1992 Classic Best minor league set - they stuck in a card featuring Schmidt's 500th home run. I always liked the Classic sets, both major and minor leagues. They always had nice clean designs and very good photography.

  1. The Classic set also featured a painting of Schmidt on the checklist card.
