2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #5 – Sandy Koufax, Los Angeles Dodgers
I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.
The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.
I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.
Card #5 – Sandy Koufax
Career Day – September 9, 1965. This date marks the fourth no-hitter of Sandy Koufax’s career – and his first ‘perfect game’. Koufax and his Dodgers teammates beat the Cubs 1-0 behind Koufax’s 14 strikeout performance. In the game, Koufax was unreal with 70 percent of his pitches being counted as strikes.
Progress – 5/25
