2010-2011 Topps: Ivan Rodriguez, Texas Rangers-Washington Nationals, C

Congratulations to Ivan Rodriguez for his 1st ballot selection to the MLB Hall of Fame with 76% of the vote.  Rodriguez played 21 seasons between 1991-2011 mostly for the Rangers, but also with the Tigers, Nationals, Marlins, Yankees, and Astros.  He was a 14-time All-Star, 13-time Gold Glover, 7-time Silver Slugger, and an A.L. MVP for the Rangers in 1999.  Rodriguez earned a World Series ring with the Marlins in 2003 as the NLCS MVP, and appeared in another World Series with the Tigers in 2006.  He also helped the Rangers into the postseason in 1996, 1998, and 1999.  Defensively, Rodriguez often led the league in Putouts, Assists, Double Plays Turned, Range Factor, and Fielding Percentage as a Catcher.
