Bob Buhl - 1961 Topps

Robert Ray “Bob” Buhl (August 12, 1928 - February 16, 2001) was a terrible hitter throughout his career, but enjoyed tremendous success, especially against the Los Angeles Dodgers, beating them eight times in 1956 alone. After spending two years in the Korean War, Buhl joined a Milwaukee Braves pitching staff that included Warren Spahn and Lew Burdette making them a dominant rotation in the National League. Buhl won ten or more games in ten of his 15 seasons in the Majors leagues with the Braves (1953-1962), the Chicago Cubs (1962-1966) and the Philadelphia Phillies (1966-1967). He led the NL in winning percentage (.720) in 1957 posting an 18-7 record and led in shutouts in 1959 with four. Bob helped the Braves defeat the New York Yankees in the 1957 World Series appearing in two games striking out four and going 0-1. He helped lead them back to the Fall Classic in 1958, but did not appear in the World Series losing effort against the Yanks. In 1960, he earned his only All-Star Game selection as he went 16-9 with 11 complete games and 121 strikeouts. Bob Buhl finished his career with a 166-132 record, had 111 complete games and 20 shutouts, struck out 1,268 batters and posted a 3.55 career ERA in 457 games.
