Thirteen shutouts. Twenty-eight complete games. A franchise-record for consecutive games won (15). Each time Bob Gibson put on his scowl, hitched up his pants and strode to the mound in '68, he authored a new chapter in a year defined by pitching dominance. As hurlers from Hollywood to the Motor City disarmed hitters and decimated records, Gibson stood a cut above, with his masterly mix of shutouts, streaks and strikeouts culminating in a 1.12 ERA that raised the bar (and helped lower the mound) for every pitcher since.
On the 50th anniversary of this pitching tour-de-force, the 2018 Cardinals Yearbook -"Gibby's Glory: 1968 and the Year of the Pitcher" - salutes the man and the season that re-wrote the record books. Inside this gorgeous 192-page keepsake …
- No. 45 reflects on his once-in-a-lifetime season in an exclusive sit-down interview.
- Opponents from 1968 share memories of doing battle vs. Gibson: "Like getting a tooth pulled," recalls Hank Aaron. "You just hope it doesn't hurt too much."
- In the first collection of its kind, go inside every Gibson start - from the season-opener through Game 7 of the World Series - to learn the details, color and clubhouse reaction each time he took the mound.
- Relive all the key stories that defined 1968 as pitching's greatest year, from Don Drysdale's scoreless innings streak to Denny McLain's 31 victories.
And best of all, imagine taking home one, two, three (or more) additional copies of our must-have Yearbook and taking care of every Redbird Fan on your shopping list!
