Former Philadelphia Phillies Catcher, Darren Daulton passed away on Sunday after a four-year battle with brain cancer. He was just 55 years old.
Daulton was a 3x All Star, and 1x Silver Slugger with an outstanding ability to handle his position behind the plate. He helped the Florida Marlins win the 1997 World Series.
He was one of the rookie cards I always looked for when opening packs of 1986 Topps Baseball. Even to this day, I consider him one of the key cards to have in the set. I always looked for his cards in bargain bins and can remember hoping to pull an elusive Phillies Finest card from 1994 Ultra Baseball.
Daulton is a member of the Phillies Wall of Fame and is remembered as a fan favorite and a franchise best.
