Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Rollie Fingers


It took two voting cycles for Rollie Fingers to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but there was little doubt after his initial 65.7% showing that he would be inducted by the BBWAA. In his second year on the ballot, Fingers received 81.2% of the vote. The reliever was a seven-time All-Star and won the 1981 AL Cy Young and MVP Awards. Pretty impressive for a relief pitcher. At the end of his career, Fingers considered signing with the Cincinnati Reds, but refused to shave his famous handlebar mustache.
