Craig Biggio, Houston Astros, Hall of Fame

Craig Biggio was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015 after a 20 year career with the Houston Astros. According to Baseball Reference, his career Wins Above Replacement rating was 65.1. Biggio currently ranks 23rd on the all time hits list with 3,060, but Adrian Beltre (3,048) and Albert Pujols (2,968) may pass him soon. He is 2nd all time in the Hit by Pitch category with 285, just 3 short of the top spot, and he led the majors in this category 5 times. Chase Utley with 199 HBP is the only active player anywhere close to Biggio in this regard. Just so you know, Hughie Jennings is the all time HBP leader with 287 and played from 1891 to 1918, effectively making Biggio the modern era leader in this category.

Biggio won 4 Gold Gloves, 5 Silver Sluggers, and played in 7 All-Star games over the course of his career.

Here is a list of the Craig Biggio cards that I currently have in inventory. Send an email message to BigBubbo@yahoo.com about any cards you wish to purchase or talk trade. I personally collect Bob Gibson, Roberto Clemente, Tom Seaver, St. Louis Cardinals – especially from the 60’s, 1969 and 1986 New York Mets, and 1985 Kansas City Royals.
