Here's A First For No-HItter Junkies and Kellogg's Cards

Jim Busby threw a no-hitter on this day in 1973.  He got Kellogg's cards in 1975 and 1976.  That matches his two no-hitters.

The question for everyone today is this - in Busby's 1973 no-hitter what happened for the first time in a no-hitter?

In the no-hitter he defeated Jim Perry and the Tigers.  Bill Freehan was the only other Tiger in the game to appear on a Kellogg's card.

His Royal teammates in the game who had Kellogg's card appearances were Freddie Patek, Amos Otis, John Mayberry, Lou Piniella and Cookie Rojas.

Otis homered in the 3-0 win.

  1. Busby became the first pitcher in MLB history to throw a no-hitter without coming to bat. The designated hitter rule began being used in the AL in 1973.
