Collecting Cleveland Indians Since 1982

Collecting Cleveland Indians Topps team sets from 1952-present, as well as post-war minor and major league autographs.

New Arrival: Joe Rudi, of, Oakland Athletics

I really like these the look of signed FDC. Especially if they were signed with a bold blue ballpoint pen. The autographs really pop.

  • Joe Rudi was an instrumental part of the Oakland Athletics dynasty of the 1970’s. He was the teams starting LF during all three of the A’s World Series-winning campaigns.
  • Rudi would lead the league in hitting once, in 1972, with 181.
  • He would be selected to three All-Star teams, win three Gold Gloves and twice would come in second in MVP voting.
  • All told he would spend 16 seasons in the majors and amass 25.4 WAR and a line of .264/.311/.427 with 179 HR.
  • Fun fact: Joe Rudi was a Cleveland Indian for 8 months in 1965. He was snagged from the Athletics while on waivers by the Indians in May 1965. But the Indians traded him back in December for Jim Landis and Jim Rittwage.
