The next 1975 “In Action” card up in my thread is none other than the great Rod Carew, penultimate hitter of that generation as he was racking up batting titles while with the Minnesota Twins:
Carew was on his way to a fourth straight title in 1975, and fifth in seven years when he’d bat a cool .359 while also leading the league in On-Base-Percentage with a .421 mark.
He would have two more titles ahead of him, including his mesmerizing
run at .400 in 1977 when he ended up at .388 and an American League MVP
Award and an eleventh-straight all-star birth.
As a matter of fact, Carew would be named to the A.L. All-Star team for
18-straight years between 1967 and 1984, every single year of his career
except his last in 1985 when he collected his 3000th hit while batting
.280 at the age of 39.
The man was a hitting machine, and his .328 career average attests to
that, along with his Hall of Fame induction in 1991 in his 1st year of
eligibility, being named to 90.5% of ballots cast (42 ballots managed to
leave him off if you can imagine!).
