2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-4 – Jim Palmer, Baltimore Orioles

2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-4 – Jim Palmer, Baltimore Orioles

I really like the ‘Mound Dominance’ subset that Topps included in their 2012 base set.  The cards are sharp, the graphics are solid, and I am a sucker for cards that pay homage to a historic baseball event.

The ‘Mound Dominance’ set recalls 15 amazing pitching performances in major league history.

This is card#4 – Jim Palmer, Baltimore Orioles

JIM PALMER

The dominant day – October 6, 1966.  In his first World Series appearance, Jim Palmer dazzled as he took control of the game and dominated the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Sandy Koufax.  Palmer threw a complete game shutout, while allowing just 4 hits in the contest.  He struck out 6 batters and walked three while securing victory for the Orioles.

Progress 4/15
