Gene Garber, 1980 Topps

Name: Gene Garber
Team: Atlanta Braves
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: Who wants to know?
Key 1979 stat: Eyebrows constantly furrowed
It's just sad, really: How little did Gene Garber trust other people?
  • He hired a private investigator to follow the bat boy.
  • Rather than take signs from his catcher, he would just yell out what he was going to throw.
  • He personally signed off on this card to make sure Topps got the "good side" of his beard.
  • He cut his own hair.
  • Every time an infielder made an error, he'd scream, "I KNEW IT!!!"
  • He constantly pitched from the stretch just so he could shift his eyes back and forth.
  • He wore a jacket under his uniform. Sorry, that's got nothing to do with trust issues, it just looks ridiculous.
