The ABC's of Baseball: G is for Goose Eggs
1960 Topps #340 Harvey Haddix
My first inkling was to use Jack Morris, for his stunning performance in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. This was probably the most meaningful game that ever passed nine innings without a score, but I decided on Haddix instead. Harvey, if you weren't aware, threw 12 perfect innings against the Milwaukee Braves in 1959, only to lose the game in the 13th inning. That, in my book, takes the concept of goose eggs to the extreme.
