Mike Schmidt 1981 Topps Record Breaker

Mike Schmidt 1981 Topps Record Breaker

I love cards like these – they encapsulate a specific moment is baseball history that is worth paying attention to.

Topps has always done a fantastic job of commemorating some of the great moments from the prior season with their ‘Record Breakers’ subset, and their cards in the 1981 set are no exception.

Have a look:

This card celebrates Mike Schmidt hitting more home runs in a single season than any other third baseman before him.  During his MVP year of 1980, Schmidt connected for 48 round-trippers!

Atta Boy Schmidt-y!!!
