Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #7 – 1974 Topps Design

Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #7 – 1974 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 7th card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1974 Topps baseball card:

Nolan Ryan was an absolute workhorse for the Angels during the 1974 baseball season.

He led the American League in the following categories:

  1. innings pitched – 332.2
  2. walks – 202
  3. strikeouts – 367
  4. batters faced 1,392
  5. hits allowed per nine innings – 6.0
  6. strikeouts per nine innings – 9.9

I told you!!!  It’s too bad that they don’t make pitchers like him any more!!!
