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.
