I was pretty sure Topps only gave Sandy the usual highlight or leader cards for 1967, but after reading his 1966 stats, I had to double check for a base card. Sure enough, no base card. When you read his stats at the bottom, you'll know that Topps WAS OUT OF THEIR MINDS not issuing a 1967 version. This leads me to believe that maybe Topps no longer had/has rights to print cards of retired players.
Koufax's last season was unbelievable. Definitely hard to see that career end, yet if my memory serves me right, he was having arthritic arm troubles.
Here are Koufax's stats from 1966 at the age of 30:
|YEAR||CLUB||W ||L ||PCT ||SO ||BB||ERA|
|1966||Dodgers ||27 ||9 ||.750 ||317 ||77 ||1.73 |
I'm starting to feel like a one trick pony!
