Also notable in 1965 for Marichal is the game in which he beat the Dodgers' catcher, John Roseboro, with a bat. If you don't know about it, you can find photos here, for instance.

While the majority of my cards represent the declining Marichal of the 1970s, in the 1960s, along with Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax, Marichal was one of baseball's best pitchers. I wonder if the Roseboro incident -- which I certainly didn't know about as a kid collecting in the late 80s -- is the reason his cards remained so affordable.
Thanks for reading!
