2001 Topps Archives ‘Pride Of NL’ Featuring Willie Mays & Stan Musial

I love cards like these.  And since my chances of owning the original, especially in good condition, are pretty slim, I don’t mind taking the reprint and adding it to my collection.

So, a big ‘Thank You’ goes out to Topps for keeping the vintage collector interested in modern baseball cards.

Speaking of vintage, there may be no better players from that time period than Willie Mays and Stan Musial.  These two superstars combined for over 6,800 hits, 4,000 runs scored, 3,800 RBI, 1,100 home runs, and 400 stolen bases. 

And when it comes to accolades, Mays and Musial combined for 5 MVP awards(with 6 2nd place finishes), 12 Gold Gloves(all Mays), and 40 All-Star game appearances.

A classic addition to my collection!!!
