1984 Topps – 1983 Home Run Leaders Starring Mike Schmidt & Jim Rice
Here, Here, for the League Leader baseball card!!
This little 3″ X 2″ pieces of cardboard encapsulate baseball history and preserve it for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
This card comes from the 1984 Topps baseball card set and honors the Home Run leaders from the 1983 baseball season.
Have a look:
In 1983, the ‘Home Run King’ was Mike Schmidt of the Philadelphia Phillies. He paced all of major league baseball with his 40 home runs. Not too far behind him was Jim Rice of the Boston Red Sox who led the American League with 39 round-trippers.
This card makes its way into the Mike Schmidt player collection that I am piecing together. I’ll have to grab another one, in time, for the Jim Rice set of cards that I recently started building.
