Card Spotlight: 1976 SSPC Top 30 Countdown Jim Hunter 425 (#27)

Nickname appropriate.

Catfish Hunter’s SSPC card pictures him in a pose that matches his nickname.

If you bought a Topps card in 1975, his card showed him as an A but he was really a Yankee by then. If you also owned the SSPC card, you’d have all the teams represented that Hunter every played on. He didn’t play in the major leagues. Thought technically he started as a Kansas City Athletic.

Both of these cards capture the transition nicely.
