The Koufax Countdown! 1960 Topps

We are getting down to the last few years of The Koufax Countdown! No one really knows how fast Sandy Koufax threw throughout his career because they didn't use a radar gun. It was estimated around 93-94 MPH but some say thats way off. He did strikeout basically everyone.

The side picture looks a lot like the Fleer picture from 1963. Koufax led the league in strikeouts per nine in 1960. He did that 6 times in his 12 year career. In 1960 Koufax was 24 years old and really started to come into his own. His true dominance began the next year (maybe I should've counted up?)

Thanks for reading!
