2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – Nolan Ryan
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 Nolan Ryan from the set:
With a major league career that spanned 27 seasons and four decades, Nolan Ryan appeared in the postseason just five times. He and his New York Mets teammates made it to and won the 1969 World Series.
Ryan’s postseason career numbers are: 7 starts, 2-2 record, 1 save, 58 innings pitched, 3.07 ERA, 63 strikeouts and 14 walks.
