Default Let's see your Nolan Ryan run / cards

Finished off a higher-grade, ultra-centered Nolan Ryan run in December (PSA 8-9) up to 1982, and really enjoyed the challenge.

Here's a pic of my run, and would love to see whatever interesting Nolan Ryan items the board has to share.

I only caught the last half of his career growing up, but his dominance, velocity, and durability are amazing to me. In the current age, I'm not sure how anyone comes near his Strikeout or No-Hit numbers.
And maybe *THE* fastest heater ever at 108.5 mph, if the pseudo-scientific documentary Fastball is to be believed...

Slightly off the well worn path.

Default Thanks for sharing

your awesome Ryan collection!! Ryan was a second favorite (to Clemente) for me. I have been working on a run of some of his tougher cards - I have (will try to find/post photos soon) 1968 O-Pee-Chee rookie PSA 6, 1968 Milton Bradley rookie (mid grade), 1968 Venezuelan rookie - low-mid grade (SGC 40??). 1971 O Pee Chee PSA 8 (or 8.5 don't remember), 1975 O pee CHee PSA 8, looking to get the 1973, 1974, 1976 and 1977 O Pee Chee- higher grade to round out the collection. Find the odd ones - much more of a challenge to find/find nice.

A recent addition; looks like a 6 or 7 in hand:



And an oddball 1975 piece:

That ‘71 sure does look under-graded. Much nicer than the 4 on the flip. Makes you wonder what PSA sees that we don’t. I’ve always thought that if you can only see a flaw with a loupe, then they shouldn’t knock it so hard.

Very nice Ryan collection, Jason. Growing up in Houston, he was always my favorite player and the only pitcher I followed on a regular basis for two decades.

My only Ryan card unfortunately...

Actually I have two Ryan cards. Forgot about this baby. In fact doesn’t this ‘74 Topps Ryan action shot look exactly like the ‘75 piece that Adam has above?

Yep; Ryan had great mechanics throughout his career.
