Steve Carlton 1973 Card

Dec 11, 2005, 1:27 PM EDT

A new weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Steve "Lefty" Carlton.

I found this card in one of the random boxes of old cards I have.  I was approximately negative 7 or 8 years old or so in 1973.  I’m guessing I picked this out of one of those random cards for a quarter boxes at the old card shop.  Holy Shit! A Phillies pitcher had 27 wins.  I can’t even fathom that happening in this day and age.

Steve Carlton, Gaylord Perry, and Wilbur Wood after the jump.  Wilbur really looks thrilled to be here.
