I've had this card for a long time, I never really paid much attention to it. I got it at a game, I think, though I don't even remember if it was Angel Stadium or Arlington.
I've always thought Mr. Ryan had such a goofy look on his face. And that goofy look countered all the bad-ass-ness that he'd attained in his life. He doesn't look like a guy who struckout over 5,000 people. He looks like some kid who pumps gas. "Want me to check the oil, mister?"
Here's to Nolan Ryan, the king of strikeouts and no-hitters.
