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.
