Rollie Fingers 2002 Topps Tribute – 1972, 1st World Series Appearance
I like commemorative baseball cards, and this one is a unique one. The card pays homage to Rollie Fingers’ first appearance in the World Series in 1972.
Of course, this got me to do a little research because I wanted to see what Rollie did in the 1972 World Series to deserve a card honoring that event.
First, let me show you the front of the card:
And now, onto the notes about the 1972 World Series:
Against the Reds, Rollie appeared in 6 of the 7 games played. He compiled a 1-1 record with two saves. In 10.1 innings of work, Rollie amassed an ERA of 1.74 while striking out 11 of the 39 batters he faced.
I would say that his debut in his first World Series is card-worthy!! Atta Boy Rollie!!
