1983 Topps Super Veteran – Gene Garber

Good Old Gene Garber had a 19 season career that took him on a 5-city tour.  In his best seasons, with the Atlanta Braves from 1979-86, Garber established himself as a solid closer.  Just when the closer role became an important fixture on a club, Garber supplied that strength for the Braves.  In his 7 seasons with the team, Garber captured 110 saves.  For his career, he has 218 total saves along with a win/loss record of 96-113.

Amazingly, as a relief pitcher, Garber appeared in 71 games during the 1975 season.  None of which were starts…
