Card: #125 Rich Gossage


“ There is not a lot to like on this card other than the player. ” -muskie027

“ Looks like Goose is having a mug shot photo taken...lol ” -SandersFan

“ Can’t say that I remember the Goose in Texas. The mustache will always be remembered though. ” -rmitchell6700

“ "Don't not accept checks from this man." ” -mkaz80

“ This was such a great set. I remember it being somewhat “expensive” for packs. My late mother loves it at the time though because I vividly remember completing the set with her randomly bringing packs home for me and always wanted to see what we got out of them. Never duplicated it’s awesomeness after the first release IMO ” -BrewerAndy

“ Always like the Studio series. It was a nice concept of quality portrait photos. ” -kirkscards

“ I don't like to criticize cards but this is terrible. I can't find anything I like about it. Granted, I can't see the back from my tablet as the hover feature doesn't work on it, but still... ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I think I am one of the few who really like this set. ” -NJDevils

“ 91 Studio seems like a missed opportunity. The black and white photos could have worked so well with a different design. Full-bleed probably wouldn't work, but a nice black border would have made these killer. Even Goose seems dubious about the design choice. ” -crimnos2

“ Not a fan of the Studio sets. These color bordered ones are better but I still don't like them for some reason. ” -captkirk42

“ baseball card or mugshot....you decide ” -Lennoxmatt

I loved the 1991 Studio release... in 1991! The 1992 set was better and 1993 was much better. 1994 was the BEST design IMO. I loved how these cards matched the set-name. Studio shots of the players and uncommon info about the players. It was a great difference from the rest of the products at the time. The only thing similar to these was the Score Dream Team subset, but that was only a handful of cards. I'd LOVE to see a modern set with the 1994 design!

One of my favorite sets.  This particular card doesn't do the set justice.  Most of the pictures are wonderful, this one comes out more as someone said, like a mugshot.  Most of the pictures were quality and I loved the facts on the back that gave you some information about the player that you normally wouldn't know.  Favorite bands, movies, TV shows, most feared pitcher/batter, etc..

That picture belongs on the side of a milk carton. And not in a good way.

That looks more like a mug-shot then a card.

The backs on this set are SO good! Of course Goose Gossgae likes country music, collects arrowheads, and watches Sanford & Son.
