1981 Fleer Gene Garber #249 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Gene Garber is best known, perhaps, for ending Pete Rose’s 44 game hitting streak sending him into an epic fit of whining that he still engages in from time to time today. I hope Pete bet against himself that day. I like to think that Garber humiliated him so badly that he drove to the nearest casino in South Carolina to drown his troubles with cheap beer at the blackjack tables.

Honestly, can you imagine Joe Dimaggio whining that the pitcher didn’t throw him a meatball in his last at-bat in the game that ended his streak?
