Mike Schmidt 2012 Topps Gold Standard – 1,500 RBI Club

Of the ‘Gold’ cards that are part of the 2012 Topps base and update sets, I think I prefer the ‘Gold Standard’ version sets the most.

The ‘Gold Standard’ set acknowledges a player’s entry into a rare statistical category – basically encapsulating history right into the cardboard.  And that is right up this collector’s alley.

Here is the card of Mike Schmidt from the ‘Gold Standard’ set:

The card celebrates Schmidt joining the ‘1,500 RBI Club’.  The event occurred on September 26, 1987, when he connected for a 3-run home run as the Phillies topped the Expos.
