Collection: Todd Hollandsworth 1997 Metal Universe Autograph

Todd Hollandsworth was the 5th consecutive Dodger to win the Rookie of the Year award in 1996.  Via Wikipedia:
He led all N.L. rookies that season in hits, doubles, home runs, runs batted in, and stolen bases in 149 games.
Hollandsworth would spend 5 1/25 season in LA, posting a Dodger career batting average of .266 with 41 home runs, 179 RBI's, and a .732 OPS.  Currently, he is a pre and post game analyst for the Chicago Cubs.  Of special note, Todd is married to the sister of former Dodgers reliever Matt Herges.

Featured here is a 1997 Fleer Metal Universe certified autographed card of Todd Hollandsworth from my collection.

Just for fun.  Check out this funny video of Todd Hollandsworth, as Dodger, playing left field in Wrigley Field.  Little did he know that he did not catch the last out of the inning.
