1990 Year of the No-Hitter August 15th Terry Mulholland PT 3

This is our third and final card dedicated to Terry Mulholland's 1990 No-Hitter.

1991 Donruss #BC-14 Terry Mulholland

Nice looking card I like the Highlights flair and the succinct "NO-HITS GIANTS" tag line. I do however ding them for picking a shot of Mulholland on the road rather than pitching at the Vet where he recorded the No-Hitter.  

1991 Donruss #BC-14 Terry Mulholland (b-side)

A very thorough write up here. Can you imagine a baseball card containing this much text today?

Too bad there is a glaring error in the first sentence. I am no journalists, but I do remember this from my 100 level Journalism course I took 30 years ago - Spell the names correctly and get the Dates right. Donruss failed on the date here as they have the No-Hitter a month early on July 15th rather than August 15.

The card has a second error while discussing a Baseball error. Donruss refers to Phillies Third Baseman Charlie Hayes as "Chris" - perhaps that is what his friends call him.

I give Donruss credit for mentioning that Mulholland pitched to the minimum and also name dropping Gary Carter at the end of the text.
