1976 Topps #461 - NL & AL Championships

  • Both League Championship Series ended up in sweeps in 1975. I'm not sure if any other season had two LCS sweeps between 1969 and the realignment/wild card. At least the NL had one extra inning game to keep things a little interesting. These line scores are about as informative as can be, considering that both LCS are on one card. It would have been better to make a separate card for each series.

  • Who is the player between Bench and Perez?


  1. Since the Reds are in their home uniform, the picture would have to be from game 1 or 2. I'm also guessing its the pitcher that finished the game. In game 1, Don Gullett went the distance. In game 2, Rawly Eastwick pitched the last three innings. The glove looks like one a lefty would wear, so my guess...Don Gullett

  2. Yeah, it's Gullett.

  3. I cheated and had to look:
