1984 Topps - AL Active Career Save Leaders

If you wanted to be one of the active career saves leaders in the American League in 1984, you had to have a mustache.  Let’s go through the top three at that time:

In third place with 136 saves, Dan Quisenberry made up for his basic, everyman mustache with an incredible submarine delivery.

In second place with 206 saves, Rich Gossage complemented a legendary ‘stache with a legendary nickname, “Goose.

And, leading the way with 301 saves, Rollie Fingers redefined the baseball mustache during an era when there was a lot of competition – a great deal of mustachery, one might say.
