MISSING IN ACTION- 1971 GREG GOOSSEN

Today on the blog we have a “missing” 1971 career-capper for former first baseman Greg Goossen, who played the last of his Big League games during the 1970 season:


Goossen finished his MLB career with a split season between the Milwaukee Brewers and finally the Washington Senators, playing in a combined 42 games and hitting .241 with 20 hits over 83 at-bats.
In 1969 with the Pilots he had his best year, hitting .309 in 52 games for the one-year organization, with a power surge of 10 homers in only 139 at-bats.
Over his six seasons under the Big League sun he hit .241 with 111 hits in 460 at-bats spread out over 193 games between 1965 and 1970, playing for the New York Mets, Seattle Pilots, Brewers and Senators.

  1. On a 1967 Mets Rookies card, his position was catcher.

    1. And on his 1970 Pilots card, he's posed at first base. Apparently, he was so bad defensively, they could not find a place for him. He needed the DH.

    2. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true.

    1. There were a couple of 1971 Senators cards that looked like that, including Denny Riddleberger and Bill Gogolewski. Can't tell if it was a night shot or the shadows.
