1977 Topps Baseball #531 - Lyman Bostock

  • Lyman Bostock had the best season of his tragically short career in 1977. Most of his totals would have led the team (or even the league) in most years, but this was Rod Carew's huge season. Bostock got a few MVP votes, but he was overshadowed by Carew.
  • Bostock left the Twins as a free agent after the season and signed with the California Angels.

  1. I was at July 24th Twins game. if I ever could re-live going to a game I've seen it would be this one. It was a 8 hour marathon of just about everything a person can experience in baseball, it hot, cold, rainy (OK not snowy) it was dramatic. extra innings. Bostock's walk off home run is still clear memory. After the Lyman became and will always be my favorite player.
