Card fact: This is the only card in the set to feature three individual photos on one card. Fascinating, huh?
What I thought about this card then: Never saw it. The interesting thing is that in 1975 I was more aware of Dick Bosman than I was of Steve Busby or Nolan Ryan. The reason for that is I received 100 percent of my baseball knowledge in 1975 from my baseball cards. And I owned a Dick Bosman card. I did not own the Busby or Ryan cards.
What I think about this card now: If you were a Steve Busby fan (and, surprisingly, I knew one when I was a kid), this was your only chance in 1975 to get a card featuring Busby, because Busby wasn't featured on his own card! (More on that when card #120 comes along).
Also, this is almost a throwaway "highlight." No-hitters are cool and all, but there are two or three no-hitters most years. You don't see them commemorated in card form every year.
Other stuff: This is the first of 57 horizontal cards in the set. All of the horizontal cards are either a team card or from a subset.
Back facts: Ending the top line of a headline with a preposition! Naughty, naughty, naughty.
Both Busby and Ryan threw no-hitters in back-to-back seasons. It was Bosman's first and only one.
Other blog stuff: We have reached the end of the highlights! New, pretty colors coming up!
