Steve Garvey Bio-
With his clean appearance, Garvey was quickly nicknamed “Mr. Clean.”  As a young teenager, he served as bat boy over a five-year period for the Dodgers, spurring his interest in the game.  Then in college, he played both football and baseball but was then drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1969, only eight years after being the team’s bat boy.  He stayed with the team until 1982 when he was traded to the San Diego Padres, finishing his 19-year career in MLB with that team.  During his professional career, Garvey achieved some great things.  He was NL Most Valuable Player in 1974, was on the All-Star team 10 times, and he still holds the league’s record for the number of consecutive games played with 1,207.

A few of Garvey’s other accomplishments include being one of just two players to start in an All-Star game voted in with a write-in, one of 15 MLB players in the game’s history to have six or more 200-hit seasons, and tying Bob Robertson’s 1971 record for homeruns and doubles for five extra base hits.  In 1981, Garvey made the list of “100 Greatest Baseball Players of all Time”, having his number 6 retired in 1989.  Finding Steve Garvey baseball cards is actually easy, using sites online to include eBay or searching through local sports memorabilia stores.
