For me, the word "Bittersweet" best describes my feelings on Ron Santo being elected to the Hall of Fame. It would have been nicer for his election to have happened before

this, but that's not the way it went. Still, its nice to see him finally elected. Bill James has Santo ranked sixth all time among third baseman, yet he is the 15th to be elected to the Hall. Seems to me his election is long overdue.

Baseball-reference.com wasted no time on updating his page.

But this should be a happy time, so let's celebrate with nine more of my favorite Santo cards, in no particular order.

  1. Well said. As far as I'm concerned, the fact that Mr. Santo is still able to bring Cub fans so much joy, even now, is a tribute to what he was and always will be... the greatest Cubs fan of all.
