A 12-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner, Mike Schmidt hit 548 home runs and led the NL in homers eight times. In addition to winning three MVP awards, Schmitty received more votes than any other third basemen when Major League Baseball announced its All-Century team in 1999. He received 96.52% of the vote when he was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1995. As "Iron Mike" turns 66 years old on Sept. 27, 2015, SI honors Schmidt with 20 rare photos of No. 20.
