the undisputed star of this week's sheet (although not the only hall of famer) is sandy koufax.
over the last 6 seasons of koufax's career, his record was 129-47 with a 2.16 era. he struck out 1713 batters, threw 1632.2 innings, hurled 115 complete games, and weaved 4 no-hitters. he also won an mvp award, three cy youngs, and two world championships. has there ever been a better or more impressive run for a pitcher?
that tale. instead of rehashing that, i will note that all three of his home runs in 1981 came as a pinch hitter, which is not really a surprise. the first two came in consecutive at bats, however, which is interesting but not as impressive as del unser and lee lacy hitting home runs in three consecutive pinch hitting appearances.
an argument (warning - tommy and rau and even davey lopes all have potty mouths) on the mound in the 1977 world series.
you may have noticed that there were only 14 cards featured in this post - that's because, once again, one of the players featured was a double dipper. he'll get a separate post later on.
