1976 Topps
Nolan Ryan

All that you need to know about Nolan Ryan in 1976 is what is written on the back of this card: 

"Nolan hurled 4th no-hitter of career, 6-1-75. Fanned side on 9 pitches twice. Had 19 K's in one game."

This is a nice card of a great pitcher in the prime of his career.

This Topps issue is starting to grow on me. What's your favorite card from 1976?  This is a pretty good one.

I have a friend who says that is the worst Nolan Ryan card of all-time. It disliked it so much that he traded it to me. I gladly accepted.

My favorite '76 card? That's tough. Probably one I don't have yet: Johnny Bench.

It's funny how people's opinions differ.... I really like it.

I'm so-so on the Nolan Ryan card. It's kind of blah on the photography.

I haven't looked over my 1976 cards in a while. From memory, my favorites are the Oscar Gamble cards (regular and traded) with the best baseball Afro around and the Kurt Bevacqua bubble gum card.

I like the Sporting News All Stars subset. It was cool to open a pack and get a Ty Cobb or a Babe Ruth!

I definitely have to say Bench because its the card I always picture in my head when Bench is mentioned, but I also like the Ryan and Rose because those cards capture their in game personality away from the action.
