Julian Javier with 14 HR's, 64 RBI's and a .281 BA couldn't make your top 9?

It was a toss-up between Javier and Shannon. Shannon seemed to have the edge.

Old Cards said...

Funny. Dick Hughes had more wins and a better ERA than Gibson that year. This lineup of cards just reminds how good the 67 Topps look.

Jim from Downingtown said...

Gibson missed a month of 1967 with a broken leg.
