Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #6 – 1973 Topps Design

Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #6 – 1973 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 6th card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1973 Topps baseball card:

6

As for Ryan’s 1973 season, it was historic!!  Ryan struck out a career high 383 batters during the 1973 baseball season.  And he did it in 326 innings of work.  The 383 K’s that Ryan amassed during the 1973 season is the eighth highest single-season tally in baseball history, and the highest number recorded since 1886 – Yes, 1886!!!

Atta Boy Nolan!!!
