Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a fan of the Philadelphia Phillies.
And, growing up, Mike Schmidt was one of my favorites. What an amazing player. One of the best, without a doubt, to ever put on a Phillies uniform. So when I got back into collecting baseball cards, I knew I needed a Mike Schmidt autograph.
Turns out it wasn’t easy to get.
I lost auction after auction on eBay. The problem was, I just wasn’t willing to spend through the roof for a card.
And then it happened.
For less than $20 (I think I paid $15-17 for this one), I got the card I had been seeking. Even better? This was a 15/15, so even rarer. Loved it!
(Note, the scratches in the photo are the plastic case it’s in — those details came up a ton in the scan!)
This is, by far, one of the best cards in my collection and one I don’t see myself parting with.
