Those watching saw the kid in Mike Schmidt emerge when he smacked the 500th home run of his amazing career. For years the Hall of Fame third baseman displayed a fairly stoic demeanor on the field, leading the gang at Veterans Stadium to believe he was too cool for school. However there were occasions when "Schmitty" revealed to the world just how emotional and sentimental a guy he is. One unforgettable instance, was the 9th inning of the 4/18/87 game vs the Pittsburgh Pirates at Three Rivers Stadium. With the Philadelphia Phillies trailing by a score of 6-5, Schmidt took Don Robinson deep for a three-run blast that turned out to be the game winner and his jubilant trot around the base paths was a delight to see, turning even his opponents into fans. This historic homer gained Schmidt entrance to the glorious "500 Home Run Club" and this signed full ticket is a fantastic way to commemorate Schmidt's shining moment. Sprawled across the front of the crisp, clean ticket (NM), Schmidt's autograph shows ("8-9") potency. Full photo LOA from JSA.
