2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #5 – Sandy Koufax, Los Angeles Dodgers

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #5 – Sandy Koufax, Los Angeles Dodgers

I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.

The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.

I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.

Card #5 – Sandy Koufax

Career Day – September 9, 1965. This date marks the fourth no-hitter of Sandy Koufax’s career – and his first ‘perfect game’.  Koufax and his Dodgers teammates beat the Cubs 1-0 behind Koufax’s 14 strikeout performance.  In the game, Koufax was unreal with 70 percent of his pitches being counted as strikes.

Progress – 5/25
