Fun Cards: 2019 TWJ Gaylord Perry
Gaylord Perry was a much better pitcher than people remember. Yes, he used the spitball, but does anyone really care about that? 300 wins, 3500 strikeouts, and the 13th highest career WAR for pitchers. If my math is correct, at the time of his retirement, he was 8th all-time. Since then, he has been passed by Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Phil Niekro, and Bert Blyleven.
P.S. The Mariners really need to bring back the trident as their primary logo. So much more character and charm than the current borefest they wear.
