2001 Topps Archives – 1976 Strikeout Leaders Featuring Nolan Ryan & Tom Seaver
Gotta love when Topps throws a card at you that makes you cherish a player or two.
And for me, that is exactly what happens when a Topps Archives baseball card brings back a league leader card. It is time to celebrate the accomplishments of these players – and Topps does a great job of gently reminding us of that.
I picked up this 2001 Topps Archives card for a quarter. It is a reprint of the 1977 Topps card that celebrates the Strikeout leaders from the 1976 baseball season.
Have a look:
Nolan Ryan led the majors, and the American League, with 327 strikeouts in 1976. Far behind, but still the National League leader, was former teammate Tom Seaver with 235.
I don’t know about you, but I would gladly pay a quarter to take a ride down memory lane! Thank you Topps Archives!!
