|1975 Topps Bill Madlock.|
My favorite thing about Bill Madlock is his contribution to the 1979 Pirates World Series championship. On a team with Willie Stargell and Dave Parker, they still needed some shoring up of their offense, and traded for him mid-season. It was Madlock's only World Series, and he hit .375 in it. I have the 1979 World Series on DVD and watch it every now then -- I think it's clear that the Orioles are actually the better team, but the Pirates rose to the occasion and got great performances from key players at the right time.
