1989 Topps Major League Debut #44: Goose Gozzo
PHOTO: Somehow, Gozzo got Topps to put "Goose" as his first name on the card even though he was known by his given name of Mauro throughout his career. I'm sort of wondering if that white line is actually going in one ear and out the other.
STAT: Gozzo's major league debut game, mentioned on the back of his card, was his best career start in the big leagues.
Probably the most impressive thing about Gozzo was being involved in trades for two good starting pitchers: David Cone and Bud Black.
