The World Series is far from over but this has to be a sweet moment for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw.
The multiple Cy Young award winner pitched a dominant game last night, striking out 10+ batters tying only one other Dodgers pitcher to do so in a World Series – the legendary Sandy Koufax.
There’s already a lot of similarities between the two other than being left-handed pitchers having played for the same ball club.
Their dominance in the game both in the regular season and post-season will go down in the history books (it already has for Koufax).
For collectors, both ace pitchers would be a brilliant addition to any card collection. We list a few below that are amazing to own or just fun to look at (for those who don’t have deep pockets).
