Everybody's Got A Record: Roy Face Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

In 1960, Roy became the first pitcher to earn three saves in a single World Series as the Pirates beat the Yankees. Since then, four other pitchers have tied the record [Kent Tekulve, John Wetteland, Mariano Rivera, and Troy Percival].

1968 Topps #198 Roy Face


I've been looking for a nice version of the 1969 Topps Roy Face for my Flipping and Trading book project and when I search around if I find another Face that I don't have yet I'll pick that one up too.

The Flipping and Trading project is a good one! I've thought about doing the same thing.

Great card of Lefty in the contest. :)
