Finally found a copy of this card!!!!
Finally after 5 long years of searching, I came across this 2004 Topps Originals signed by Luis numbered 31/51. It cost me only $17 delivered and is a welcomed addition to the PC.
To me Tiant is a borderline Hall of Famer. He had a few dominating years, but only appeared in 3 All-Star Games and never got higher than 4th place in Cy Young voting. He finished his career with 229 Wins, 3.30 ERA, 2416 strikeouts, and a 1.19 WHIP.
Tiant may be best remembered for his unusual delivery on the mound which Johnny Cueto has copied a lot.
