2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-8 – Nolan Ryan, Houston Astros

2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-8 – Nolan Ryan, Houston Astros

I really like the ‘Mound Dominance’ subset that Topps included in their 2012 base set.  The cards are sharp, the graphics are solid, and I am a sucker for cards that pay homage to a historic baseball event.

The ‘Mound Dominance’ set recalls 15 amazing pitching performances in major league history.

This is card#8 – Nolan Ryan, Houston Astros

NOLAN RYAN

The dominant day – September 26, 1981.  Ryan’s first no-hitter in the National League took a bit longer than his earlier ones, but that is because his offense was giving hm a ton of support.  And that was all Ryan needed to capture his 5th career no-hitter.  Going 9 innings while striking out 11 and walking 3, Ryan dominated an All-star filled Dodgers lineup.

Progress – 8/15
