This is one of my favorite sets. The ones that I am going to show are mostly in well-loved condition. That's just how I remember them.
I really like the design of the card backs. It works well unless the player has had a long career.
#54 - Ron Santo
He went 215 innings without issuing an intentional walk. The game was certainly a bit different at that time. Barry Bonds got lots in intentional walks later in his career. Did everyone else get more IBBs?
Not on the card - in 356 career games over 14 years he issued on 43 intentional walks.
Not on the card - I checked and found that the number of intentional walks didn't go up from the 1970s to today. The numbers stayed fairly similar, even though more teams were added to the league.
