1976 Hostess #4 - Gaylord Perry

  • It looks like Perry didn't do much in 1975 since it was split between two teams, but he was 18-17 with a 3.24 ERA in 37 starts
  • Perry had two (maybe even three) peaks in his career. This five-year period looks like a good one -- he won between 16 and 24 games each year.
  • Before peak, peak, or after peak? end of second peak


  1. Sometimes I wonder if he ever looked under 50 years old. I know I've seen some of his earlier cards, but... I honestly suspect the batboy was in the photo, 'cause I can't bring myself to believe that Gaylord Perry ever lived 'til he was 45 or so.

  2. Must've been tough pitching 36,102,527 innings.
