1970 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs #19 - 21

Now I've reviewed the back of every 1970 Kellogg's card.  Sure I didn't mention the slight variation on Bob Gibson's card.  

#21 Brooks Robinson

He was the AL MVP in 1964 and he fielded perfectly in the 1966 and 1969 World Series.

Not on the card - of course he fielded well in the World Series.  He won 16 consecutive Gold Glove awards.  Can you name the only other player to equal that number of Gold Gloves?

He received MVP votes in 12 seasons and he finished in the top five of voting five times.

#20 Gaylord Perry

He was an all-star in 1966.  Jim Perry is his brother.

Not on the card - he later won two Cy Young Awards including one when his record was 24-16.  It was quite a split vote as Perry on got nine of the 24 first-place votes.  Runner-up Wilbur Wood was 24-17.  Perry had a 1.92 ERA in 40 starts (he pitched once in relief - he got a save).  He had 29 complete games and five shutouts.  Check out the voting on baseball-reference.

#19 Boog Powell

He had 11 RBIs in a doubleheader.  That tied an MLB record, but some players have had 12 RBIs in one game?   He homered three times in a game three different times.

Not on the card - Boog has been a regular presence at Orioles games.  He owns a barbecue restaurant at the ballpark.

He was runner-up for the MVP award in 1969 and then he won the MVP award in 1970.
