My Billy Williams Collection Expands to 21 Cards

 These 2 cards are #20 and #21 for my Billy Williams collection.  Both of these cards from the 1971 set commemorate what Billy Williams, Johnny Bench, and Tony Perez did in the National League during the 1970 baseball season.  To have 3 players rank in the Top 3 in both home runs and RBI’s shows just how dominant that these 3 Hall of Famers were in 1970.

Billy Williams – 42 home runs

Johnny Bench – 45 home runs

Tony Perez – 40 home runs

 1971 Topps – Home Run Leaders – Johnny Bench, Billy Williams, Tony Perez

1971 Topps – RBI Leaders – Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Billy Williams

Billy Williams – 129 RBI

Johnny Bench – 148 RBI

Tony Perez – 129 RBI

Fergie Jenkins Collection Adds a Few More Friends

I was able to pick up 2 more cards for my collection today.  Check them out…

A 1970 Topps  – ’69 National League Strikeout Leaders card with Fergie Jenkins, Bob Gibson, and Bill Singer.  I love these old League Leader cards and to have one with 2 of the most dominant pitchers of all time on it is a nice addition to my collection.

A 1972 Topps – ’71 National League Strikeout Leaders card with Tom Seaver, Fergie Jenkins, and Bill Stoneman.  Another great looking card with 2 HOF pitchers that dominated the 70’s.
