2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-14 – John Smoltz, Atlanta Braves

2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-14  – John Smoltz, Atlanta 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#14 – John Smoltz, Atlanta Braves

JOHN SMOLTZ

The Dominant Day – October 17, 1991.  In Game 7 of the NLCS, John Smoltz pitched his best postseason game of his career.  He threw a complete game shutout while striking out 8 batters and allowing just 6 hits.  Smoltz threw 123 pitches in the contest and was the leader of the Braves as they advanced to the 1991 World Series.

Progress – 14/15
