In 1984, I was suddenly told (by my coach) that I would never be a baseball player again. Topps had informed me that they were dropping me from the Topps Major League Baseball trading card set. Remission? No. Retraction? No. My life as I knew it had been over!

IMPORTANT NOTE: The PSA CardFacts Condition Census is a work-in-progress and should only be used as a guide. While every effort is made to be as accurate as possible, errors and omissions may occur. In addition, the census of any particular card can and does change as new cards are graded and/or discovered. Buyers or sellers of a particular card should do their own research to determine the relative importance of that card. PSA CardFacts welcomes the input of knowledgeable collectors and dealers to help improve the PSA CardFacts Condition Census listings.

By default, each of the ten finest cards will be shown on a single line in the Condition Census grid. If more than ten cards are tied for the top ten positions, then cards may be grouped by position into a single line in the grid. When cards are grouped in this way, the total number of cards per position will be shown in parentheses after the PSA grade. (Source: www.psacard.com)

Rafael Palmeiro Corrales (September 24, 1964-) became only the fourth player in Major League history to become a member of the 500 Home Run Club and the 3,000 Hit Club. Palmeiro was an All-American at Mississippi State University and was originally picked by the New York Mets in the 8th round of the 1982 amateur draft, though he did not sign. The Chicago Cubs eventually selected him in the first round (22nd pick) in the 1985 amateur draft. He played for the Cubs (1986-1988), Texas Rangers (1989-1993, 1999-2003), and the Baltimore Orioles (1994-1998, 2004-2005). He led the American League in hits (191) in 1990 and doubles (49) in 1991, slamming his 500th home run in 2003 and his 3,000th hit in 2005. Having played in the outfield, first base, and as a designated hitter, Palmeiro was a four-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove Award winner, and two-time Silver Slugger Award winner. Palmeiro never officially retired from Major League baseball but had not taken the field since 2005, and holds a .288 batting average with 3,020 hits, 569 home runs and 1,835 RBI.
