The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #77

1959 Topps #302 Don Mossi

How would you like to wake up to THAT on a Tuesday morning?

I've featured this card before, so one of them will probably end up in a zoolBay auction pretty soon. This time, I've taken the opportunity to read the back of this card, which is really interesting. It reads: "It would be hard to figure out how many games have been saved by Don Mossi. One of the most active hurlers in baseball, he's a late-inning specialist who makes the opposition behave."

Aside from the somewhat saucy language, I believe this card is hinting at the need for a stat that reflect how often a pitcher comes in to save a game. I wonder what they ever called that statistic?
