My 493rd Post - Sorry Fred McGriff It Isn't About You. Who Is It About?

Fred McGriff finished his career with 493 homers.  This post isn't about him because (a) he didn't get a Kellogg's card and (b) he's not Lou Gehrig who also had 493 career homers.



27 players are ahead of McGriff and Gehrig on the all-time home run list.  Only nine of those players made it onto a Kellogg's card from 1970 - 1983.  One made it into a 1990s set.  Can you name all ten players?

  2. 1990s set.....man, I just can't think who that is. I thought Schmidt retired in 1989--and I remember that because when he retired (early in the season) he had 6 homers....which was more than anyone on the Cubs. A day or two later, the Cubs played a series in Pittsburgh and began hitting home runs in bunches, and they were off to a fine season. Comiskey Park closed the following year.

  3. Nice work. You missed one player who was in the same set as Gehrig. You also missed two first basemen, one from each league.
