1989 Topps Major League Debut #52: Gene Harris
PHOTO: Very nice color unity with the card border. Harris looks a bit like Fred McGriff, too.
STAT: Guess what? McGriff is also one of just 2 players to hit multiple homers off Harris.
Harris was a decent reliever for parts of his career and was the Padres' closer in 1993 when Trevor Hoffman came over in a trade from the Marlins. He's best remembered as one of the players the Mariners acquired when they traded Mark Langston to the Expos (the two others being much more successful at the major-league level.)
