Thomas "Tommy" Baldwin (born June 10, 1945 in Gatesheadmarker) is a former footballer who played for various clubs, mainly in Londonmarker.


He signed for Chelsea as a relative unknown from Arsenal in part-exchange for George Graham in 1966. Playing in an attacking role, he scored 17 goals in his first season (including one on his debut against Manchester City) as Chelsea reached the FA Cup final. He played in the final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembleymarker, though Chelsea lost 2-1 on the day.

He scored 16 goals in each of the next two seasons, but those years ultimately finished trophy-less. In 1970, he helped the side reach the FA Cup final and he played in the final against Leeds United, this time finishing on the winning side as Chelsea won 2-1 in a replay. The following year, Baldwin helped inspire the side to a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the Cup Winners' Cup final in Athensmarker but after that his star (along with the Chelsea's) began to fade. Injuries, loss of form and disagreements with manager Dave Sexton over his social activities combined to reduce his opportunities to play and after spells at Brentford, Manchester United and Millwall he retired.
