The Golden Sox Project (Chris Sale League Leaders)

Two weeks ago, I showed off some Red Sox cards that Greg (Night Owl Cards) sent along for his contribution to a Time Travel Trading trade. I immediately claimed the lot, and this card was the key reason why. Chris Sale's League Leaders card becomes the 11th addition to my Golden Sox project.
For whatever reason, the back of Sale's card lists the 2017 AL ERA leaders, a stat Chris Sale did not lead in that year. He did come in second though to Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber. He did however lead the league in innings pitched and strikeouts, and was the runner up to the AL Cy Young Award.

The Golden Sox Project page has been updated - 11 cards down, 20 to go! Thanks Greg!


  1. Good of NO to find one of these for you.

  2. You're welcome! It's especially weird when Topps shows a list of leaders in which the player featured doesn't even appear!
