1977 Topps Baseball #435 - Turn Back The Clock Mau

  • Stealing 104 bases in a season, especially in that era, was a great accomplishment. The running game had been virtually nonexistent for over 40 years when this mark was set.
  • I'm pretty sure this picture is from the October 3 game against the San Francisco Giants. In the bottom of the 7th inning Wills singled, stole second, and then stole third base. That's Jim Davenport at third base catching the throw.

  1. This is a great card and one of my favorites of the set: slide, dust cloud, scoreboard in the background. Classic.
