1970 Topps #502: Rollie Fingers, Oakland Athletics, P

Rollie Fingers played in the Majors during 18 seasons between 1968-1985 for 3 different teams.  Throughout his career, Fingers helped to define the closer's role as it is known today, becoming only the second closer to enter the Hall-of-Fame (after Hoyt Wilhelm).  1970 would be Fingers' final full season as a starting pitcher, and by early '71, he would become a full-time closer.  

BV: $10.00
Cost: $1.13
Condition: FR 1.5
Completion: 625 of 720
Comment:  With this acquisition, I've managed to complete all listed players from the '70 set with the exception of N.Ryan.
