What’s good for the Goose …

I like autographs. Who doesn’t.  I also appreciate when autographs on well-designed cards show up in our hobby. 

Like many others I like to gather autographs of Hall of Famers.  I have many of the same guys you likely do too, none of the super rare guys who are deceased.  

Well, Goose Goossage was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008 yet his signature is one that was not in my collection. Shame on me.

But there is a positive to this.  If I had owned Gossage’s auto, I likely would have overlooked this sweet 2015 Panini Cooperstown autograph featuring HOFer Rich Gossage posing with a goose.  What’s also pretty near about this is that Rich signed this on-card, so he knew he was signing a card with a goofy picture. Love it.

On a side note, I like what Panini did with the Cooperstown brand this year.
