1984 Topps NL Active Career Save Leaders 709 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Looking back in time at this card, it feels like Topps is sticking it to Braves fans. Gene Garber is, of course, the first great, modern closer for the Atlanta Braves. Bruce Sutter is the first big name, disaster free agent signing for the franchise. One of them I loved watching pitch, especially when he sent Pete Rose into a decades long fit of whining. The other is among my least favorite players and has no business in the Hall of Fame.
