Here's a "Nickname" card for one of my all-time favorite players, Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew.
Check it out:
I chose a 1970 format since he was coming off of his M.V.P. season of 1969, and had another monster year in 1970, slamming 40+ home runs for the eighth and final time in his illustrious 22-year career!
I don't know why, but I was always in awe of this guy even though he retired right before I became a baseball "junkie", so I never got to see him in action.
What needs to be said here about the man who truly was a "Killer" at the plate?
573 lifetime home runs, six-time American League home run champ, 100+ runs batted in nine times, 11-time All-Star, and Hall of Fame induction in 1984.
As far as I remember it, he's still the only player to slam 40+ homers in a season in three different decades (50's, 60's and 70's).
Oddly enough, Reggie Jackson slammed 40+ in 1969 and 1980, but never did it in the '70's…Go figure…
