Not too many baseball cards feature Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn working in the field.  After all, Gwynn is the best hitter of his generation and one of the greatest hitters in the history of the game.

And let us now forget that for a time, Tony Gwynn was an elite defender!

Gwynn captured five Gold Glove Awards during a six season span from 1986-1991.  He retired from the sport with a .987 fielding percentage over 20 seasons.

We miss you ‘Mr. Padre’.
