1985 Topps – Ernie Lombardi
I think one of the coolest facts about Ernie is that he caught back to back no-hitters. As rare as the gem is I am sure that the number of catchers that have caught them have to be just as rare. Johnny Vander Meer threw no-hitters in back to back games, and Ernie caught both of them.
This statue greets fans who enter the new stadium in Cincy. It is located in Crosley Terrace. Ernie is joined by Joe Nuxhall, Frank Robinson, and Ted Kluszewski in front of the stadium. It really does provide a beautiful view as you enter the ballpark.
