I was able to pick up this subset for a very low price. It’s a 6-card set and it highlights some amazing accomplishments that occurred during the 1979 baseball season.
1980 Topps – ‘1979 Highlights’ – Card #3
Headline – “Manny Mota sets all-time pinch mark with 145th substitute hit”
Text on the back – Los Angeles, September 2, 1979 – Dodgers’ Manny Mota smacked a pinch-single in the eight inning of tonight’s game to set major league record of 145 pinch hits. The former mark of 144 was held by Smoky Burgess, catcher, 1949-1967.
30 years later – The new record holder is Lenny Harris who has 212 career pinch-hits.
