1967 Topps
Frank Robinson

For those of you that think that vintage baseball cards of Hall-of-Famers are too expensive, think again.

This card was $1.50.

And of a major player nonetheless.

Frank Robinson is one of those guys every baseball fan should know about. Along with being among the all-time home run leaders, Robinson was the first, and only, to be named MVP in both the National and American Leagues.

He is also a Triple Crown winner.

He really gets little respect and should be considered among the game's best.

Great site! I feel the same way about my comics. Can't read them when they're slabbed!

Very much agreed on Robinson being underrated. His balance of power and average should mean he's mentioned as often (or almost as often) as Mays and Aaron.
