- The Yankees really fleeced the Cleveland Indians in the Graig Nettles trade after the 1972 season
- Nettles was glad to be traded to New York since he wasn't on speaking terms with Cleveland manager Ken Aspromonte
- This card represents a nice five-year run for Nettles (he made the AL All Star team in 1975), but the best was yet to come
- Graig led the AL with 32 home runs in 1976.
- Oddly enough, 1976 was the only year Graig wasn't an AL All Star from 1975-1980
- before peak, peak, or after peak? peak
