Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #10 – 1977 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 10th card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1977 Topps baseball card:

Nolan Ryan worked his tail off in 1977.  He threw 299 innings in 37 starts for the Angels.  He compiled a record of 19-16 on the year with 22 complete games and four shutouts.  He had an ERA of 2.77 and finished the season with a league-leading 341 strikeouts and a K:9 Innings ratio of 10.3:1.
