The Nitty Gritty Card of the Day

Today's Nitty Gritty Card of the Day comes from the 1966 Topps set, it is card #74 of left-handed pitcher Don Mossi. I love players with nicknames and Mossi had 2, actually he had a few more, but some are less nice than others... Mossi was known as the Sphinx. He was also called Ears. This is the last card of Mossi as he didn't actually pitch an inning in 1966. He retired after 12 seasons in the big leagues, a career which included a World Series appearance, an All Star game and 101 wins, 55 complete games and 50 saves. This is one of many cards that came to me from Rod of the Padrographs blog. Thanks again Rod! To everyone else, enjoy the true beauty of this card!


  1. I saw one his cards pop up on the Topps Giveaway site the other day when I was redeeming a code.
