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:
- innings pitched – 332.2
- walks – 202
- strikeouts – 367
- batters faced 1,392
- hits allowed per nine innings – 6.0
- strikeouts per nine innings – 9.9
I told you!!! It’s too bad that they don’t make pitchers like him any more!!!
