  2. OK - Strictly from memory:
    1) Larry Bowa
    2) Jerry Reuss
    3) Dave Goltz, Dennis Leonard, Jim Palmer
    4) Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, Tom Seaver
    5) Dutch Leonard, Walter Johnson

  3. Loved that NL league leader card. I had one as a kid and that was like the Holy Grail along with the 1971 NL Leader cards with Bench and Perez. Always liked studying the lists on the back too.
