Happy Anniversary Bob Gibson!!!

On this day in 1968, you struck out 17 batters in Game 1 of the World Series against the Detroit Tigers.  This is a World Series record that still stands today.  To be on the biggest stage in baseball and dominate the way you did shows how superior you were as a pitcher and competitor.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Gibson!!!

  1. I love those ’69 Topps World Series cards.

  2. One of the greatest pitchers of all-time…

    Talk about fearfull!!!

    His own catchers were even scarred of him…

    Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax & Satchell Paige are my favorite pitchers of all-time.

    Thanks for mentioning this Cardinal great.

  3. Always looked forward to pulling a Gibson card in the early 70’s when I started collecting.
    Have a niceGibson collection and I’m a White Sox guy…..!
