Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #8 – 1975 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 8th card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1975 Topps baseball card:

8

As for Ryan’s 1975 baseball season, it was another fine season, just not a spectacular one  In 28 starts, Ryan went 14-12 with 10 complete games and 5 shutouts.  He had an ERA of 3.45 while striking out 186 batters in 198 innings of work.

In the seasons prior to and after the ’75 season, Ryan started 41 and 39 games.  In 1975, he did not play after game 131 of the Angels’ season missing between 6-8 starts.
