Baltimore Orioles

Frank Robinson

Frank Robinson is up there with Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, and Ted Williams as the best outfielders (and players in general) baseball has ever seen. He played in parts of 21 MLB seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, Baltimore Orioles, LA Dodgers, California Angels, and Cleveland Indians. Robinson was a career .294/.389/.537 batter with 586 home runs, 204 stolen bases, and a 154 OPS+. While he spent more time with Cincy than the Orioles, he was a far better player in Baltimore, and earned his highest career honor with the O’s. 

That honor would be his 1966 season. During that year, Robinson took home a Triple-Crown after batting .316/.410/.637 with 49 home runs and 137 RBIs. He also led the league in OBP, slugging, and runs scored at 122. Of course, this earned him the MVP award. He could also have a great card for his 1956 Rookie of the Year season with the Reds, but if Robinson were to get introduced to MLB The Show, his best card would definitely be based on his ‘66 season.
