Random Royals #6: Getting Closer To An Impressive Record

**From now until the Royals eventual World Series Championship comes to fruition I'll be posting Random Royals from my collection.** 

The Royals improbable run in the playoffs has left them incredibly close to an impressive playoff record. If they are able to take a 2-0 lead over the Giants they will have won the most consecutive playoff games dethroning a Murders Row era Yankees team and a Big Three Era Yankees team with 12 straight wins each.

Which brings us to Jim Wright's card from 1982 Topps. He pitched for the Royals for parts of two seasons and since 2002 has been a pitching coach of the last team that swept through early rounds of the playoffs in 2007, the Colorado Rockies.
