Pretty sure its Banks with 5 in ......... either '58 or '59. Let's say '58 just for fun.

Banks and 5 is correct, well done! Now just for kicks and giggles, let's see if we can get the year right.

Banks was the all-time leader, then Jim Gentile tied him in 1961 or so when he hit 5. Mattingly broke it with 6. Seems like another recent guy also has 6 now. 1955 was when Mr Cub set the mark. (I met Gentile a few years ago - attended a game in Baltimore in the same skybox with him).

1955 is correct.

I think at this point we just all assumed Spriggs was right.

That was true until yesterday, when he missed the ERA question by 0.01.

Now that you bring up the ERA error, I was going to protest that. I know a lot of stats as a result of (almost) being able to memorize stats on baseball cards. If you have a Sutter card handy from either 1978 or 1979 (only ones I have), you will see the stats on both say 1.35 which is what I had remembered. So the f*ing SABRE clowns must have changed something.

Well he did have a 1.34161490683 ERA so we will give the card companies the benefit of the doubt on rounding. Although with that rounding they must be credit card companies

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I am clever.

if thats a Topps card the '78 could be worth a whopping $3.00 and the '79 just $1.50.

Spriggs - you're right, man. Baseball cards really did make the numbers something you'd remember for a lifetime. I used to get them as a kid, and that's the stuff I remember most vividly. As I got older, and what seems like hundreds of new manufacturers of baseball cards came out, the appeal of collecting them left me, and along with it went my ability to remember stats (specifically what years those things happened).

Reading your nostalgic posts, and some of the stuff Scorecard Paul talks about makes me want to start collecting again. Maybe I will do that and just stick with Bowman or Topps, and ignore all the rest. Goldarnit Spriggs - you make me feel like a kid again!

Seems like every year I get the urge to start a new collection, but then I see the prices and just roll my eyes. Back in my day you could get a pack of 20+ Topps cards and a stick of gum for 50 cents. My day was 20 years ago, but still, it's gotten ridiculous.

I still buy a pack or two every year for that nostalgic feeling.
