Mike Schmidt’s Highly Sought After 1973 Topps Rookie Baseball Card
The 1970′s brought us some legendary baseball rookie cards, and many of them can be had affordably if you are a wise and patient shopper.
Unfortunately, Mike Schmidt’s rookie card does not fall into that category. They’re downright expensive!!
And they always sell, regardless of the condition.
Of all of the rookie cards from the 1970′s that I still want for my personal collection, Schmidt’s is the one that will cost me the most. Heck, it will probably cost more than many of the others combined!
Don’t believe me, check out some ended auctions for this beauty from the 1973 Topps set:
I have shopped enough to know that I can nab a Robin Yount, George Brett, Jim Rice, Goose Gossage, and Bert Byleven rookie card for less than I would have to spend for an EX or MNT rookie card of Schmidt’s!
And still, I cannot stop the dream of owning one!!!
