For this week's Signature Sundays post, I've got my latest pickup from 2005 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes to share with you...
Carlton was a sure-fire, first-ballot HOFer, and one of the best strikeout pitchers ever to take the mound. He's also one of the best left-handed pitchers in baseball history, period. Steve still stands 4th all-time in career strikeouts behind only Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens. He's 11th all-time in wins (2nd all-time for lefties), but if you eliminate guys with names like Pud Galvin and Kid Nichols who played in the 1800s then he ranks even higher than that. Oh yeah, and 4 Cy Young Awards.
Penmanship Hall of Fame - For not only fitting a lengthy name on the sticker, but for doing so with such great cursive, Ga'Quincy McKinstry goes directly to my collection's penm...
Wow! Always loved the "original" heroes series and I wish hockey didn't get all hung up on the decades version. Great auto and if you ever decide to go for all 20 I wish you luck!
Very nice. I don't know if I have others off the top of my head but I do have the Stan Musial.
Whoa, Musial is one of the harder guys to get, and one I don't have yet. That must be an awesome card Hackenbush!
