1982 Topps

August 11, 1982, Houston Astros at San Diego Padres

Nolan Ryan throws a one-hitter. His 8th one-hitter of his career at that point. He goes on to throw 5 more one-hitters and still holds the modern-day career record of 13 one-hitters.

Tony Gwynn played centerfield and batted 2nd. He went 0-4 with a K. The lone hit was from Terry Kennedy.

About the Card

1982 Topps. The 2 stripes running down the left side were highly influenced by Activision's video games for the Atari 2600. It doesn't really work on a baseball card because it looks like a hockey stick.
