|#31. Goose Gossage.|
I've featured cards of Gossage a couple of other times, such as on the 1985 Donruss All-Stars and on the 1981 Topps Supers, and in both of those he appears on the card as Rich Gossage. It's nice to have some cards identifying him as Goose.
|#32. Ryne Sandberg.|
In the 1985 All-Star Game, Sandberg went 0-1 in two plate appearances, scoring a run. Dave Stieb struck him out in the 6th inning, and he was then walked by Dan Petry in the ninth. He then advanced to third base when Petry walked both Tim Raines and Jack Clark, and scored when Willie McGee hit a ground-rule double.
|#33. Jeff Reardon.|
I can never remember which relievers are in the Hall of Fame and which aren't, since the selections have seemed completely arbitrary to me. Looking it up, I see Reardon isn't in the Hall, but Bruce Sutter is. Seems to me like they had extremely similar careers, but whatever.
|#34. Pete Rose.|
|#35. Scott Garrelts.|
|#36. Willie McGee.|
In the game, McGee went 1-for-2 with 2 RBI. He grounded out in the 7th off Donnie Moore, and hit a ground rule double in the 9th off Guillermo Hernandez, scoring Ryne Sandberg and Tim Raines.
|#37. Ron Darling.|
|#38. Dick Williams.|
|#39. Paul Molitor.|
Molitor would eventually be a 7-time All-Star, but he started slowly; in his first ten years in the majors, 1978-1987, he was only an All-Star twice, in 1980 and here in 1985. He picked up the pace later, making the All-Star team four years in a row closer to the end of his career, 1991-1994.
|#40. Damaso Garcia.|
That's it for this week's installment of the 1986 Donruss All-Star set; two more weeks to go to finish the whole set! Thanks for reading!
