My Favorite Baseball Player's Sunset Cards


-  He retired early in the 1989 season.  I was in attendance at Candlestick when he got on base safely for the last time (on a walk).  He failed to get on base safely in the last game of the series with the Giants.  Then he retired before the first game of a series against the Padres in San Diego.

-  I have the Donruss, Score, and Upper Deck.  Not the Fleer or the Topps.

-  Some say Schmidt is the best baseball player since Willie Mays.

Anyway, this subject was suggested by John, of Tigers fandom fame.


  1. Thanks for the post and shout-out.
    Good Job!

  2. That's really cool that you were there for Schmidt's second to last game... but even cooler that he's your favorite player.
