Congratulations Goose

Rich "Goose" Gossage is slated to be inducted into the Hall of Fame tomorrow. Donruss predicted as much on the back of card number 555 in their 1992 set.

The card commemorates Nolan Ryan's 308th win and Goose's 308th save. Both occurred in the same game on July 23, 1991. If you flip over the card there is a brief account of the game. Donruss starts off the narrative by saying that it isn't often that two future Hall of Famers get together to make history in the same game.

Well Goose, Donruss was right. Both of you ended up in the Hall. Congratulations on flying that high.

I wish there were a Angels and Mariners Card/baseball blog. We could have like, the cage match of division rivalry blog to the death...or something.

I wonder what division will be the first to have a card blog dedicated to each team...AL West is half way there! Let's do this.
