BASEBALL BROTHERS- JIM AND GAYLORD PERRY

The next “baseball brothers” card is a 1970 edition featuring one of the all-time best brother combos, Jim and Gaylord Perry, who were in their prime at this time:


What needs to be said for a brother duo who finished 1st and 2nd in their respective league’s Cy Young Award voting that year!
Jim Perry took home the American League’s award with 24 wins, while younger brother Gaylord finished second to Bob Gibson with his 23 wins for the San Francisco Giants.
But he didn’t have to wait too long, as he’d also take home the A.L.’s award just two years later in his first season with the Cleveland Indians in 1972.
Between the two we are talking over 500 Major League wins between them , with the “youngster” Gaylord finding his way to the Hall of Fame.
Just awesome!
