Randy Johnson Wins #300

Possibly the most exclusive club left in baseball ,it will be a very long time before any one comes close. Realistically the only current players with even an outside shot are Johan Sanata and C.C Sabbathia. Even then they would both need to stay healthy for the next 10 years and average about 17 wins a season. What that means, is that in all actuality, we probably have just witnessed the last member to ever enter the 300 Win Club.

If only his rookie cards weren't victims of the mass-production era. Take your pick from 1989 Upper Deck, Donruss, Fleer, Score or Topps Traded. With 300 Wins a foregone conclusion going into the '09 campaign, it's too bad Upper Deck didn't have the for sight to include buyback autographed RC's of the Big Unit. That might have actually made one of his RC's worth something.

Congrats Randy.
