2006 Topps Allen & Ginter #107
Seriously, did anyone else not have a clue that Tom Gordon pitched 21 seasons in the Major Leagues? I really had no clue who this guy was. How does that happen?

I guarantee if he had a Latino name, and not Tom Gordon, I would know who he is. Stephen King even wrote a book about him. When I saw the link to the King book, I even thought, "Tom Gordon is a generic name, but that's a funy coincidence...wait...it actually is about Tom Gordon the baseball player? Really? Holy..."
