Rollie Fingers 2002 Topps Tribute – 1972, 1st World Series Appearance

Rollie Fingers 2002 Topps Tribute – 1972, 1st World Series Appearance

I like commemorative baseball cards, and this one is a unique one.  The card pays homage to Rollie Fingers’ first appearance in the World Series in 1972.

Of course, this got me to do a little research because I wanted to see what Rollie did in the 1972 World Series to deserve a card honoring that event.

First, let me show you the front of the card:

VINTAGE FINGERS

And now, onto the notes about the 1972 World Series:

Against the Reds, Rollie appeared in 6 of the 7 games played.  He compiled a 1-1 record with two saves.  In 10.1 innings of work, Rollie amassed an ERA of 1.74 while striking out 11 of the 39 batters he faced.

I would say that his debut in his first World Series is card-worthy!!  Atta Boy Rollie!!
