1976 Kellogg's #40 - Lou Brock


  • What did he do to deserve a 1976 Kellogg's card?
    • Was an NL All Star in 1975
    • Got some votes for 1975 NL MVP (21st place)
    • Even though he wouldn't get his 3000th hit for a few more years, Lou was probably already pretty close to being a Hall of Famer.
    • He didn't lead the NL in stolen bases in 1975, but he stole over 50 bases for the 11th year in a row. Lou led the NL in stolen bases in eight of those 11 years.
  • 1976 Highlights:
    • Stole 56 bases to extend his 50+ stolen base streak to 12 years.
    • Batted .301, which was the sixth season over .300 in the last seven years
