TTM Goodness - Leo "Chico" Cardenas

Leo "Chico" Cardenas had a 16 year major league career as one of the best shortstops in the league. Brought up by the Reds, via Cuba, he spent his first nine years with Cincy, where he won a Gold Glove and garnered four All-Star bids. He would earn a fifth, later on, with the Twins. He held the Reds' club record for home runs in a season by a shortstop (20) until some okay player named Barry Larkin came around. "Mr. Automatic" was voted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1981. Signed is a 1962 Topps #381. Sweet.
