2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-11 – Warren Spahn, Milwaukee Braves
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#11 – Warren Spahn, Milwaukee Braves
The Dominant Day – September 16, 1960. On this day, Warren Spahn threw a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 39-year old Spahn collected his 20th win of the season with this no-hitter. And he was as dominant as ever; striking out 15 batters and walking just two in the complete game shutout.
Progress – 11/15
