1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #2 – Steve Garvey
Headline – Garvey’s Streak of Consecutive Errorless Games Sets Standard
The Story – Atlanta, Georgia, September 30, 1984: Padres’ Steve Garvey has finished the season with streak of 188 consecutive errorless games, a new record for 1st basemen. The former mark of 178 consecutive errorless games at 1st base had been set by Mike Hegan of the Brewers and A’s, September 24, 1970 through May 20, 1973.
My added notes – A very well rounded player, it’s nice to see such an offensively skilled guy like Garvey take pride in his defense. Who is the best defensive 1st baseman in the game today? How long can he go without committing a blunder??
