1976 Topps #196 - AL RBI Leaders

  • All three of these guys had great years in 1975. You know you had a good season when you appear on multiple league leader cards in the following year.
  • The 1975 season was the second (and last) season in which George Scott would have over 100 RBI.
  • John Mayberry led the AL in RBI twice (1972 and 1975) and those were the only two years in which he would have over 100 RBI. He was second in MVP voting in 1975.
  • Fred Lynn also had over 100 RBI twice (1975 and 1979). Fred was the AL Rookie of the Year and MVP in 1975. The 1975 season was the first of nine straight AL All Star seasons for Lynn.
