Default This simple inexpensive card makes it into my Top 20 PC

There are plenty of 5x7 and 8x10 photos of this image available, but I never see the cards pop up. Finally found one from a member here... thanks!

I used to have tons of those Nolan Ryan cards. May still have some lying somewhere.

Man, this brings back memories. I also had a ton of these when I was younger. I remember my brother and I constantly buying these hoping for a gold bordered one.

I'd forgotten about that card too. Love it, will have to pick one up for my collection too.

The only image/picture that is better is the Robin Ventura headlock. Wasn't this one a bo jackson line drive up the middle?

Sure was a bo hit.

I haven't seen a headlock card. That would be cool. Is that the guy that got hit by a pitch and charged the mound and got his butt whooped?

Holy crap. I had never seen it, just remember hearing about it along the way. Don't mess with Nolan! lol

I looked for video of the Bo hit, but couldn't find one.

It's a 1991 Pacific card # 92 from the Nolan Ryan set.

Thats from the Ryan Express sets. There is a series 1 & 2 I have both of them! I have a 16X20 of that picture hanging in my room and it was the last thing my grandpa ever bought me before he passed so it is one of my favorite things I own. I found both sets still in their original boxes sealed at a yardsale and got them for a total of 5.00 which seems like an ok price. Im 16 but Nolan Ryan is a hero he just played with fire and intensity unmatched by any other pitcher. I mean he stayed in the game after getting hit by a ball Bo Jackson hit. Bo Jackson was a big dude and every ball he hit was hit hard so even a chopper would hurt.

I have thought about buying one of the autographed pictures where he has Ventura in the headlock. It would be great if you could get Ventura to sign it, but they are unavailable at this time.

Ryan/Ventura (available in 3 sizes)

There is also a pic of the bloody lip.

They are always out of stock don't even bother trying to get it on the site. Try to find one at a card show. You will have to pay more but thats the only way you will get it. After trying to get one almost every day for a year I gave up. You will NOT get one from the site.

What a Puss.....

-I happened across a fairly large picture that a dealer had at the National of Nolan with Ventura in a headlock. They had Nolan sign it with the inscription "Don't Mess with Texas".
