Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #19 – 1986 Topps Design

One of my 2013 collecting goals was to complete the 1999 Topps Nolan Ryan Commemorative baseball card set. The set features a re-print of each of Ryan’s base cards issued by Topps from his rookie season to his final season.

This is the 19th card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1986 Topps baseball card:

19

As for Ryan’s 1986 baseball season, he was still chugging along at 39 years of age.  During that season, Ryan went 12-8 with a 3.34 ERA in 178 innings of work.  He started 30 games for the Astros in 1986 and threw one complete game.  Ryan struck out 194 batters during the seasons and finished the campaign with a 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings average.
