Featured Card: 1981 Donruss #481, Steve Carlton
Apparently, I needed to take a break from the manic uploading of checklists. I will resume in earnest tomorrow. In the meantime, check out The Hardball Times today to read about the game Carlton pitched on this date in 1972. Although he never pitched a no-hitter, the game he had against the Giants on that day was as close as you can get to a no-hitter without actually throwing one — he recorded 27 outs in a row after allowing a lead-off single. You should definitely click the link to read more about his effort.
