1978 Topps Baseball #2 - Sparky Lyle '77 Record Breaker


  • This is a pretty rough looking card. This was the last year that I collected cards and didn't really care about the condition. I've managed to upgrade my 1974, 1976, and 1977 cards, but my 1975 and 1978 sets can really use some work.
  • Lyle ended up making 899 appearances in his career (1967-1982) and never had a start.
  • John Franco now holds this record. He appeared in 1,119 games from 1984-2005 without starting a single game.
