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!!!
