1976 Topps #198 - AL Stolen Base Leaders

  • Mickey Rivers dominated the stolen base race in 1975. He was 30 SBs ahead of Claudell Washington. It was the only season in which "Mick the Quick" would lead the league in stolen bases. Rivers stole 267 bases in his career--for some reason I thought he stole more.
  • Claudell Washington stole 312 bases in his career. He had a lifetime success rate of 70%.
  • Amos Otis led the AL in stolen bases in 1971 and stole 341 bases in his career.
