Colbert was inducted into the Padres Hall of Fame in 1999 along with Randy Jones and Ray Kroc after hitting 163 home runs as a Padre. He was an All-Star in three of his five seasons with the club (1971-1973) and once hit five home runs in a day, which occurred during a double header on August 1, 1972 against the Atlanta Braves.
