    Description

    1973 Topps Nolan Ryan #220 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Thanks to elite genetics or just pure force of will, Nolan Ryan's hundred mile per hour fastball did not abandon him as the decades rolled by. Even at the advanced age (by baseball standards) of forty-four, he was still lighting up the radar gun when he took the mound for his seventh and final no-hit masterpiece in 1991. He holds the second most untouchable pitching record in baseball after Cy Young's 511 victories, situated hundreds of strikeouts beyond his closest rival in career numbers with a total of 5,714. This eternal reign was assured by over a quarter century of blazing fastballs, rather definitively establishing Ryan as the greatest power pitcher in the game's history. Ryan's on the mound exploits are the stuff of legend to young baseball fans and nightmares for those who opposed him. No discussion about baseball's greatest pitchers can be taken seriously without the name "Ryan" being uttered. Offered is a 1973 Topps Nolan Ryan #220 that SGC graded 88 NM/MT 8.
