Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #2 – 1969 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 2nd card in the set, a re-print of Ryan’s 1969 Topps baseball card:
At the age of just 22, Nolan Ryan competed in his 3rd major league season in 1969. Ryan appeared in 25 games in ’69 and started 10 times. He compiled a record of 6-3 with 2 complete games and 1 save.
In 89 innings of work, Ryan compiled an ERA of 3.53 while striking out 92 batters and walking 53.
