Lou Brock


Hall of Famer Lou Brock was best known for his base stealing, leading the league eight times, breaking Ty Cobb's all-time major league career steals record, and breaking Maury Wills's single-season record. But he was much more then that. He topped 200 hits in a season four times and finished with 3023 hits which contributed to his career .293 career batting average. He led the NL in doubles and triples in 1968. He also finished his career with 149 home runs and 900 RBI's, very respectable numbers for someone that was a leadoff hitter most of his career.

Brock was an All-Star for six seasons, and was the runner-up for the NL Most Valuable Player Award in 1974 when he had 118 stolen bases.

For a brief time, Lou was a member of the Harlem Globetrotters as noted here.

  1. That Action packed card is really cool. Lives up to the brand's name for sure.

    I don't have a Brock postcard but I did buy a replica #20 Cardinals jersey at a shop in Cooperstown almost 30 years ago.

  2. RIP Brock. That SSPC card looks really nice, haven't seen it before.

  3. My favorite from this post would be his 1973 Topps card... but my favorite Brock card would probably be his 1976 Topps card.

    1. I’ll have to look that one up and check it out.

Retired Numbers - Oakland Athletics

  Continuing with my posts on retired numbers, below are card scans of former MLBers whose numbers have been retired by the Oakland Athletics to forever be revered. No. 9 Reggie Jackson 2013 Topps Commemorative Patch Card #RCP-7 No. 24 Rickey Henderson 1991 Bowman #692. There are so many great, great Henderson cards that I had a hard time picking out just one for this post. Well the '91 Bowman really stood out to me. No. 27 Catfish Hunter 1976 Laughlin #7. As noted here , Hunter is one of only 6 players ever that went directly from HIGH SCHOOL to the major leagues and NEVER played in the minor leagues. No. 34 Rollie Fingers 1976 Hostess #104. No. 42     Jackie Robinson 1980-1987 SSPC HoF #89. I love how Oakland's green and gold colors stand out in the border of this card. No. 43 Dennis Eckersley 2014 Panini HoF Induction Class of 2004 Autograph #78. Who do you think will be the next former Oakland A to have their uniform number to be retired? Vida Blue? Dave Stewart?

Syracuse Area Inventors!

  One of the things I like to do to pass time is click on the players featured on the opening page of Baseball-Reference . Frank Corridon was featured recently, and when I opened up his page I noticed that he had died and was buried in Syracuse, NY, so I looked closer and learned that he may be the inventor of the spitball . According to Baseball-Reference (B-R Bullpen), a "letter from pitcher (and later umpire) George Hildebrand indicates that Hildebrand was with the Providence Grays in 1902 and learned about the spitball from Corridon. He and Corridon experimented together as to the best amount of wetness. At the time, such a pitch was not illegal. When Hildebrand came to the majors, he taught it to others, who in turn taught it to others, and the rest is history." Corridon won 70 games in six big league seasons (1904-1910). In the early 1920s, the Corridon family moved to Syracuse where Frank worked and coached the Central High School baseball team. Corridon died in Syracu
