I bought some cards on eBay and there was a stack of Dawson used as filler packing material. I was getting ready to set them aside for a certain Dawson collector that loves commons when I noticed the back didn't look like Dawson. Instead it was Cedric Landrum and the entire stack was Andrew...
Sitting at 401 for his career after hitting 41 HR in 454 AB last year at age 38. Pretty amazing to be at 401 career HRs considering he never had 500+ at-bats in a season until he was 30 years old.
Last year was probably his best season as he hit .311/.392/.639 but I imagine many players had...
500+ HR was always a lock for the HOF, but now we have some players that have passed that threshold, but aren't in.

I'm missing a ton of these as there had to be six per year as it looks like the dates on them are every two months. I've long suspected it, and finally verified, that there are variations of the pamphlets. I thought it would just be location information, but this example from 1991, shows fairly...

1984 had Maddux, Glavine and Jack McDowell. 7 Cy Young's and WAR totaling 216.5
There may be others great years, but as of...
