Fun Cards: “Baseball Immortals” Steve Carlton
He was one of the greatest left-handed pitchers of all-time. Steve Carlton won four Cy Young Awards, all while playing for the Philadelphia Phillies. His first came in 1972, when Carlton won 27 games…and the rest of the staff won 32. He started his big league career with the Cardinals and appeared in three All-Star games wearing the St. Louis uniform before spending 15 years in Philadelphia. At the end of his career, Carlton played for four teams in three years: Giants, White Sox, Indians, and Twins.
By sheer coincidence, today just happens to be Carlton’s birthday.
