Possibly the most devastating, unpredictable, and intimidating pitcher to ever lace up the spikes, Nolan Ryan is one of this generation’s most collectible baseball players. Ryan debuted in 1966 with the New York Mets and pitched in all or part of 27 seasons. For Ryan the good came with the bad. When he retired in 1993, he held the record for most career strikeouts (5,714) but also the record for most career walks (2,795). Ryan continues to hold both records today by a commanding margin.

Ryan was always considered an exciting and fiery pitcher to watch. He threw more no-hitters, seven, than any other pitcher, which is three-more than second-place Sandy Koufax.
