Keith Hernandez 2001 Topps Archives – 1975 Topps Design

I have to settle for this reprint of Keith Hernandez’s 1975 Topps rookie card for now.  But in time, the original from the ’75 set is the one that I am after…

Keith Hernandez was the model for defense at first base throughout his entire career.  Hernandez captured the Gold Glove over 11 straight seasons.  But Keith Hernandez was not a 1-dimensional player.  With a lifetime batting average of .296, Hernandez also drove in 1,071 runs while scoring 1,124 himself.  Keith’s best season came in 1979 when he won the league’s MVP award after posting a .344 batting average while driving in 105 runs and scoring 116 times.  Hernandez would go on to finish in the Top 21 in the MVP race 8 times while also grabbing 5 All-star selections.  Keith Hernandez played in 2 World Series contests winning both – 1 in 1982 with the Cardinals and then again in 1986 with the Mets.

  1. Whoa. That does not look like Kieth Hernandez at all. Sometimes the moustache is the man I guess.

  2. Yeah I echo the comments above. Hernandez shaved his ‘stache earlier in the year as seen here: http://www.sportsgrid.com/mlb/keith-hernandez-shaves-mustache/

  3. KRAMER: I hate KEITH HERNANDEZ – hate him.
    NEWMAN: I despise him.
