Yes, his famous mustache is missing, but that is Rich ‘Goose’ Gossage on the left and his Hall of Fame counterpart on the right, Rollie Fingers.
Each player led their league in saves at the conclusion of the 1978 baseball season. Gossage paced the AL with 27 while Fingers led all of baseball with 37.
