Frank Robinson
(b. August 31, 1935 - )
Frank Robinson was the first and only player to be selected MVP in both leagues. He was named NL Rookie of the Year in 1956 and the loop's MVP in 1961, when he paced the NL with a .611 slugging average and led the Reds to a pennant. Traded to Baltimore after the '65 season, Frank responded in '66 by hitting .316, 49 home runs, and knocking 122 runs to win the Triple Crown. He hit 30 homers in 11 seasons with 586 career dingers. He also compiled 1,812 career RBI and 1,829 runs scored.

Comments: In January, 2000 I picked up a PSA 8 1958 Topps card as my first portrait for Robinson. In July, 2005 I replaced the card with this PSA 9 '69 Super card purchased at the National in Chicago.
Card Details Below:  
Year(s): 1969
ACC Set Designation:
Set Name: Topps Super
Country: United States
Description: These 2-1/4" X 3-1/4" cards are not the bigger "Super" cards which would be seen in following years. Their high-gloss finish enabled Topps to dub them as such. The 66-card set saw limited production, meaning supplies are tight.
