2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – Sandy Koufax

The 2013 Topps Update baseball card set includes a subset tagged as ‘Postseason Heroes.  And with that theme, you would expect to find cards of modern players like Albert Pujols, Edgar Renteria, and Pablo Sandoval but none of these guys made the checklist.

That does leave room for some nice surprises…

This is the card of Sandy Koufax from the set:

Sandy Koufax made it to the World Series in four of his twelve big league campaigns.  He won titles in three of the four match-ups, good for a 75% clip.

In those 4 match-ups, Koufax competed in eight games, going 4-3.  He had an ERA of .95 in 57 innings of work, and he struck out 61 batters while walking just 11.

He was names as the 1965 World Series MVP due to his 3 starts that included two complete game shutout victories!
