1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #7 – Nolan Ryan

1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #7 – Nolan Ryan

Headline – “Ryan Finishes Season As Game’s All-Time Leader In Strikeouts”

The Story – Cincinnati, Ohio, September 30, 1984:  Astros’ Nolan Ryan finished the season as baseball’s all-time strikeout leader.  The flame-thrower has recorded 3,874 whiffs during his illustrious career, surpassing the total of Phillies’ southpaw Steve Carlton.  The mark has changed hands several times between the two since midway thru 1983 season.

My Added Notes – Ryan finished his amazing career with 5,714 K’s.  Now that Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens(#2 & #3 all-time) are gone from the game it is safe to say that Ryan’s record will remain his for at least the next 20 years.  The current player with the highest mark is 37-year old Pedro Martinez, with 3,154.
