FANTASY CARD- 1974 BILL MADLOCK

Here's a card I knew I'd be tackling one day, a 1974 fantasy card featuring a "dedicated rookie" for four-time batting champ Bill Madlock, the catch of course showing him as a member of the team he came up with in 1973, the Texas Rangers:


I already created a "dedicated rookie" years ago on the blog showing him as a Chicago Cub, but I figured another version as a Ranger would complete the "set".
He would put in 15-seasons under the Big League sun, hitting .305 with 2008 hits in 6594 at-bats over 1806 games between 1973 and 1987, while getting tabbed for three All-Star games.
Is he a Hall of Famer?
I’d say he falls a bit short, but then again, if there are NO other four+ batting title holders not in the Hall, does that raise the argument for Madlock?

Perhaps it does...

  1. Nice card, How did the Rangers let Madlock get away? I would vote for him as a Hall of Famer. Four batting titles and finishing his career with an average over .300 is not an easy accomplishment.

    1. Hello everyone I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 3 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for a way to get him back on the Internet when I saw a post of a lady testifying of how a love spell caster called Dr Great helped her to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back so I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgive him and our relationship was back to normal again, if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because Dr Great can solve all marriage and relationship problems. If you need his urgent help email him at

  2. Outstanding card! To answer the question above, one name...Fergie Jenkins! Unfortunately for the Rangers, the trade only worked for one season because Jenkins slumped a bit in '75 and was traded to the Red Sox. Meanwhile, Madlock was winning batting titles right and left.

  3. Of course! Thanks Chris T. Guess I'm not up on my trade history of the 70's.

    1. No worries! That was a big trade at the time because the Cubs decided to rebuild and unloaded all of their stars such as Ron Santo to the White Sox, Billy Williams to the A's, Don Kessinger to the Cardinals, Jenkins to the Rangers, etc. Needless to say, Cubs fans were not happy with the housecleaning.

  4. I never thought he was HOF material, but with them letting mediocre guys like Baines, Trammell, Raines, and Simmons in, might as well let Madlock in as well. Just let some guys like Fred McGriff, the steroid group, Andruw Jones, Jeff Kent, Billy Wagner, Omar Vizquel, and Scott Rolen in. They are more deserving than the guys on the first list.

    Nice card to go along with the Cubs one. It’s not too often that you see a guy get traded after their rookie year, get a rookie card in the regular and traded set, and then go on to a decent career.
