Roger Connor
(b. July 1, 1857 - d. January 4, 1931)
Until Babe Ruth broke the mark in 1921, Connor held the lifetime record for home runs with 136. A career .317 hitter, the Giant first baseman was a bona fide dead-ball era slugger, smacking 233 triples. In his first game with the Giants in 1883, he hit such an impressive shot that the fans passed the hat and bought him a gold watch. He scored 1,620 runs and had 1,125 RBI in his career.
Inducted in 1976

Comments: I purchased this raw on eBay in April, 2003 and eventually had it graded by PSA. It's a tribute placeholder until I win the lottery and can pick up an 1886 N167 - yeah, I know, good luck!
