The Continuing Saga: 1971 Topps

#51 Steve Kline

Steve had a pretty killer 1972 season going 16-9 and posting a 2.40 ERA. Maybe more impressive is that of the 31 games Steve pitched in 1971, he pitched complete games in 15 of them. To put that in perspective, in Johan Santana's 10-year career so far he has pitched nine complete games. Josh Beckett has thrown six complete games.
