Card fact: I always thought having the initials "W.W." would be cool. Wilbur Wood is one of 31 people to make the major leagues with those initials. Other notables were Walt Weiss, Willie Wilson, Wally Whitehurst and Whit Wyatt. (Yes, I really did just look that up).
What I thought about this card then: Never saw it. This is quite a streak of cards here that I didn't see as a kid. But that streak is about to end.
What I think about this card now: Whenever I see a '70s card of a player wearing a warm-up jacket under his uniform, I notice it immediately. But when I was young, I never noticed it.
Other stuff: Wood was one of the most successful knuckleball pitchers in history and was noted for his durability. He suffered a career-shortening injury when he was struck on the knee by a line drive by the Tigers' Ron LeFlore and retired in 1978.
Back facts: Wood's four-straight seasons of 20 wins leap right off the scan. And you'll notice that he also lost 20 games in 1973. Wood wouldn't extend his streak to five straight seasons of 20 wins. But he did lose 20 games again in 1975.
Other blog stuff: I was once considering calling this the "primary colors" color combination, but I ended up using that with the red-blue color combo. I'm thinking of just calling this the ketchup-and-mustard combo. The food references seem to work for me.
