Lee Guetterman pitched eleven seasons in the major leagues, mostly with the Mariners and Yankees. In 1989, with the Yankees, he set a major league record by starting the season with 30 2/3 scoreless innings, a record for a relief pitcher. The next year he led the Yankees in victories with 11. Now the baseball coach at the Crossroads Christian Academy in Tennessee, he kindly responded to my questions about baseball cards.
"I only wish they (photographers) would taken a better picture of my rookie card with Topps.
I do not collect them now; I did a little back when I was younger."
Thanks! Personally I think this card is a cool action shot, though I guess it is a bit awkward.
