1978 HEADLINE: Orioles’ Jim Palmer Earns Win #200 Of Career

On this dy in 1978, Jim Palmer took to the mound in the second game of a double-header against the Cleveland Indians.

Palmer was seeking the 200th win of his major league career, and he did not disappoint.

He threw a complete game shutout against ‘The Tribe’ while allowing just eight hits in the game.  Palmer struck out four batters in the contest while walking just one.

Congratulations on #200 Mr. Palmer!!!

  1. I’ve always liked the AS logo in the card. Topps took way too many pictures for the Orioles cards in Yankee Stadium during the 1970’s.
