Nitty Gritty Card of the Day
Today's Nitty Gritty Card of the Day is card #11 from 1968 Topps. This card showcases the National League's strikeout leaders from 1967. Across the front this card gives you 3 Hall of Famers. Jim Bunning (who used to be a baseball player!) led the league with 253 Ks. Fergie Jenkins placed second with 236 and Gaylord Perry was close behind with 230. The cards back shows the Top-50 pitchers in the NL in that category. There were some big name hurlers in '67 and its a little crazy that Hall of Famers Steve Carlton, Juan Marichal, Phil Niekro and Bob Gibson couldn't crack the top 10 that year. I love this game, I love this hobby! 42 years LATER!
