Happy Reds birthday, Ty Cline!


June 15, 1939

The Reds swept the Pirates in the 1970 NLCS, and Ty Cline found himself as the star of the series, at least according to the 1971 Topps set. Cline was the featured player on the Game 1 (“Cline Pinch-Triple Decides It!”) and Game 3 (“Cline Scores Winning Run!”) cards. 1971 would be his last year in the majors, as he could only muster 19 hits in 69 games.
