Baseball Card Sets (By Season)
2010 Baseball Cards
- Yes! Yes! Texas reaches its first World Series and San Francisco wins its first
- No-No: Halladay throws two of the season’s six no-hitters in Year of the Pitcher
- Young and Younger: Hamilton, Votto MVPs in season with lustrous rookie class
The Giants last won a World Series when they were in New York, in 1954. The Rangers had never won a pennant since moving to Texas in 1972, nor as the expansion Washington Senators formed in 1961. But in this magical season, both reached the big stage with such young stars as National League Rookie of the Year Buster Posey and American League MVP Josh Hamilton and Rookie of the Year pitcher Neftali Feliz. In the end, San Francisco’s pitching overwhelmed Texas’ lineup power.
And that was a fitting end to a season that gave us six no-hitters, including two perfect games, one by Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay. Then Halladay threw the only post-season no-hitter other than Don Larsen’s perfect game in 1956. Though batting averages and homers were lower this year, 2010 produced an array of awesome high-average sluggers, from reliable Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera to newer stars Hamilton, Posey, Carlos Gonzalez and National League MVP Joey Votto.
