The Rucker card celebrates his no-hitter on September 5, 1908 against the Boston Braves. As stated on the reverse:
Nap Rucker, a career .500 pitcher, was struck with a hapless Brooklyn team in 1908 that finished 46 games out of first. But on September 5, the crafty Georgia southpaw was overpowering. He walked no one and fanned 14, striking out the side in the fourth inning. Three Brooklyn errors deprived him of a perfect game.That figures. The Brooklyn Bums ruined his chance at perfection.
