beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


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.
