Featured card: 1982 Topps Mike Witt #744

Witt was the workhorse ace for the California Angels in the 1980s until all the innings he pitched took a toll - and his arm was burnt out right as he hit 30.

Witt finished his career with the New York Yankees in 1993 after being traded for eventual Hall of Famer Dave Winfield in 1990 - he threw a perfect game in 1984 and was part of a combined no-hitter in 1990 with then Angels' big free agent signee Mark Langston.
