|THESE NINE ACCOUNTED FOR NINE WORLD SERIES RINGS.|
HALL OF FAMERS
- #28 Ozzie Smith was inducted into Cooperstown on July 28, 2002, receiving 91.7 percent of the vote.
FINEST OF THE NINE
- Smith redefined the shortstop position, turning it into center stage for his highlight-reel stops and pregame gymnastics. He became a pretty good hitter, too.
- The Ozzie Smith tribute continues: His clutch homer in the ninth inning of Game 5 of the NLCS in 1985 electrified Busch Stadium and served notice he could be a threat at the plate.
DESIGNED TO THE NINES
- The composition of #36 Tony Fernandez's card is top notch. The bat, left hand and jersey crease create a diagonal line that's a treat for the eye.
