Player By The Numbers For Todd Helton: 57 Different Cards.
Playing 17 MLB seasons as number 17 of the Rockies, I feel the same way about Helton as I did about Konerko being a "under the radar" player. Of course in Helton's case, I feel it's more. Mostly because he played for an under the radar team in the Rockies. Not exactly the hobby hot spot.
Despite that, Helton put up some great numbers for the Rockies. He was a five-time All-Star, four-time Silver Slugger, and three-time Gold Glove Award winner plus holds many of the Rockies club records. In 2000, he was MLB Batting champion, MLB RBI Champ, and won the Hank Aaron award.
Let's take a look at my Top 5 favorite cards of his.
#5. Ultra put out some great photographed cards and this is another with a Helton follow-through
#4 we go from one Fleer product to another. Fleer Tradition put out this nice ground ball chasing Helton.
#3 is from 2004 with Helton circling the bases. Or doing some dance ritual.
#2 Helton in hiding. Gotta appreciate the oddball photos.
