1975 IN-ACTION: JIMMY WYNN

The next 1975 “In-Action” card in my running sub-set is of the “Toy Cannon”, Jimmy Wynn, who was coming off of a great season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, his 1st MLB season with a team other than the Houston Astros in 12 years as a big leaguer:


Wynn came in 5th for the N.L. M.V.P. Award in 1974 after helping the Dodgers make it back to the World Series, though losing to the three-peat Oakland A’s dynasty.
He hit 32 homers, drove in 108 runs and of course, walked 108 times, the fourth of what would be six seasons of 100+ walks during his career.
He’d play one more year out in L.A. before heading over to the Atlanta Braves for a season before finishing up his career with a split season as a New York Yankee & Milwaukee Brewer in 1977.
In his 15-year career he’d end up with 291 homers along with 964 runs batted in and 1105 runs scored with a .250 batting average and 1224 walks in 1920 games and 6653 at-bats.
