1977 Topps #3 - 1976 RBI Leaders

  • Lee May was close to the end of his career when he led the AL in RBI, while George Foster was at the beginning of his peak years.
  • It is surprising that May would lead the league in RBI. His team finished seventh out of 12 teams in runs scored, 11th in batting average, and 11th in on base percentage. May usually batted behind Reggie Jackson in 1976.
  • The 1976 season was the first of three straight years in which Foster would lead the NL in RBI.
