#010 Juan Marichal / Bob Gibson / Fergie Jenkins 1968 NL Pitching Leaders

3 iconic Hall of Famers on one 41 year-old card! This is one of my favorite cards of the set.
These 3 all had a 20+ win season, Juan with a stunning 26! It was Bob's year though with winning the MVP trophy and his first of 2 Cy Youngs. You just can't ignore his 1968 stats like an ERA of 1.12, 268 K's, 13 shutouts, 28 complete games out of 35 games started, another of his 9 Gold Gloves and of course his 22-9 record. Incredible!

How did Hoot ever lose nine games that year?
