1985 Topps #1 Draft Pick – Tim Foli
I finally got around to grabbing a few of these cards after I declared that I wanted to collect this subset just a little less than a month ago.
Tim Foli was the #1 draft pick of the New York Mets in 1968.
Foli enjoyed a 16-year career in the majors, yet he never quite lived up to the elite status of being the 1st player chosen in the annual baseball draft. A lifetime .251 hitter with 1,515 career hits, Foli’s career highlight was winning the World Series in 1979 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Never an All-star. No individual awards won at the big league level. And hardly worth the 1st pick in the draft.
Overall ranking – 2 out of 10. Points earned for eclipsing the 1,500 career hits mark and for being the member of a World Series winner.
