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
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
