The 1956 Topps Sandy Koufax Brooklyn Dodgers no.79 baseball card is a sought-after collectible that makes for a great gift and addition to any sports collection. This card details Koufax's first full season in the majors. Nicknamed 'The Left Arm of God' for a reason, the Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher had a stellar career that lasted 10 seasons, and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. The front of the card has a beautiful layout, all in color, and features an action shot of Sandy on the mound as he throws a cannon towards home plate, as well as a portrait of the player in his Brooklyn Dodgers cap.
