FCB – 2001 Season (PR)


The complete 30 team season set with 1050 batter and pitcher cards printed on HQ cardstock

Featuring: Barry Bonds assault at age 36 of the single season homerun record, and ending with 73. It was the most incredible display of power and patience since the Babe in the 1920’s. It was actually the only time Bonds hit more than 50, but finishing with 107 extra base hits and 49 singles is quite the stat line. It was the first of 4 straight MVP awards that took him through to age 39. He is the greatest “old” player in the games history. Maybe it was the Kool-Aid, but even so, the numbers are staggering. Meanwhile, his team did not make the playoffs. Instead the Arizona Diamondbacks won the West and went on to face and defeat the Yankees in 7 game World Series. The D’backs were led by Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling, both 20 game winners. The Big Unit struck out 372 batters in just 249 innings, a rate of over 13 per 9 IP. OMG. In the AL Seattle won an MLB record 116 games only to lose to the Yankees in the ALCS. Roger Clemens went 20-3 for NYY to lead the charge. The Mariners had the most unheralded lineup of all time for a team that holds the all time wins record. Batting champ Ichiro, Edgar, Moyer, Boone … And there’s the Moneyball A’s winning 102 games, the most successful season based on payroll of all time.
