The stack of Rockies contained a handful of Todd Helton cards. For the best Helton collection that I'm aware of you should go check out the blog Home of the Toddfather. With Helton retiring last season it got me thinking.
17 seasons, all with the Rockies
.316 AVG - 369 HR - 406 RBI - 2529 HITS
5 x All-Star - 3 x Gold Glove - 4 x Silver Slugger
2000 N.L. Batting Champion (.372)
There is no denying that Helton was dominant for several seasons (1999 - 2004) and probably should have won the N.L. MVP Award in 2000, but I don't think his complete body of work justifies a selection into the the Hall of Fame. Let me know what you think.
