NL RBI Leaders (Greg Luzinski/Johnny Bench/Tony Perez)

1976 Topps

Greg Michael “The Bull” Luzinski (November 22, 1950-) was a power-hitting left fielder for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1970s combining with Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt to become one of the National League’s most potent one-two punches or their time. The Phillies took Greg with the 11th overall pick of the 1968 MLB June Amateur Draft, debuted two years later in 1970 and then became the everyday left fielder in 1972. Teammates called Luzinski “The Bull” for his massive muscles, smooth swing and intimidating physique. Greg was a four-time National League All-Star and seemed a perennial MVP candidate finishing second twice to Cincinnati players. He played 15 years in left with the Phillies (1970-1980) and was the Chicago White Sox designated hitter for four seasons to end his career (1981-1984). Over his 15-year career, he had four seasons batting .300 or better, he topped the 100-hit mark ten times and drove in more than 100 RBI in four seasons. Luzinski’s best season came in 1975 as he led the league in RBI (120) and total bases (322) while batting .300 with 179 hits, 34 home runs and 85 runs scored. Greg hit safely in every postseason game from 1976 to 1978 and he helped Philadelphia win the 1980 World Series title over the Kansas City Royals. Greg Luzinski finished his career with a .276 career batting average with 1,795 hits including 344 doubles and 307 home runs, scored 880 runs, drove in 1,127 RBI and struck out 1,495 times. In the field, he posted a .975 career fielding percentage in 1,256 games.

Johnny Lee Bench (December 7, 1947-) is considered to be amongst the greatest catchers that Major League Baseball has ever seen and was the team leader that led the Cincinnati Reds "Big Red Machine" to back-to-back World Series titles in 1975 and 1976. Bench was a smart ballplayer, with an exceptional work ethic, who starred for his high school baseball and basketball teams and was named class valedictorian in his senior year. The Cincinnati Reds then took Johnny with the 36th overall pick of the 1965 MLB Amateur Draft. He spent two seasons with the Buffalo Bisons before getting the call-up to the big leagues. In 1968, Bench hit .275 with 15 home runs and 82 RBI to win the National League’s Rookie of the Year Award and his first All-Star selection while also posting a .991 fielding percentage and a 47% caught stealing percentage to win his first Rawlings Golden Glove. These accolades were early signs of what was to come. He won ten consecutive Gold Gloves behind the plate, second only to Ivan Rodriquez who won 13. In 1969, he set the single season caught stealing percentage record gunning down 57% of the opponent’s would-be base stealers and also posted a .992 fielding percentage. That same year, at the plate, Johnny led the NL with 45 home runs and 148 RBI while batting .293 to win the NL Most Valuable Player Award. Two years later, he would repeat as NL MVP, again leading the National League in home runs (40) and RBI (125) as well as throwing out 56% of the opposition’s base runners – second all-time in single season caught stealing percentage.

Bench led a host of All-Stars and future Hall of Famers like Pete Rose, Dave Concepcion, Ken Griffey, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan and George Foster during the 1970s, helping the Reds reach the World Series four times (1970, 1972, 1975, 1976). The potent, well-oiled offense of Cincinnati earned the moniker "Big Red Machine" and could beat you with power or manufacture runs. The Reds beat the Boston Red Sox four-games-to-three in what is considered one of the greatest World Series in history and then repeated as champions in 1976, sweeping the New York Yankees. The 14-time MLB All-Star was named the 1976 World Series MVP after batting .533 with two homers and six RBI in four games. Johnny Bench was the Cincinnati Reds catcher for 17 seasons (1967-1983) and was formidable hitter at the plate as he posted a .267 career batting average with 389 home runs and 1,376 RBI. Bench also finished his career with a .990 fielding percentage behind the plate, winning 10 Gold Gloves, and gunning down 44% of the would-be base stealers. Johnny Bench popularized the one-handed style of catching that is commonplace in the game today. Johnny Lee Bench was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989. Since retiring, Bench has remained active in sports even attempting a run at the Senior PGA Tour after turning fifty. The Sporting News ranked him #16 on the "100 Greatest Baseball Players" list.

Atanasio “Tony” Perez Rigal (May 14, 1942-) was the run-producing corner infielder for the Cincinnati Reds’ Big Red Machine that went to four World Series in a 7year span (1970-1976), winning back-to-back titles in 1975 and 1976. Perez played 23 seasons for the Reds (1964-1976, 1984-1986), Expos (1977-1979), Red Sox (1980-1982) and Phillies (1983). After winning the Pacific Coast League MVP Award, Perez was promoted to the promoted to the Reds club for the stretch run in 1964. A seven-time All-Star selection, Perez is often remembered for his 15th inning home run in the 1967 All-Star game off Catfish Hunter to win the game, thereby garnering the game’s Most Valuable Player Award. Tony topped the 100-RBI mark for seven times in his career, and averaged 96 over the course of his 23 seasons in the big leagues. Tony Perez retired with 2,732 hits, 1,272 runs, 1,652 RBI, 379 home runs and a .279 career batting average. Atanasio “Tony” Perez Rigel was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000.
