Goose Gossage Joins Vintage Breaks to Open Packs and Tell Stories

Vintage Breaks-1

Baseball Hall of Famer, Goose Gossage, joined us to open packs of cards, sign some autographs, and tell us incredible stories like Thurman Munson busting his chops during a big game and his hatred for analytics. Watch the video to see Goose let loose and see which cards he pulled including an O-Pee-Chee Ozzie Smith rookie card!

Goose Gossage joined our owner, Leighton Sheldon, for a special card break event that you were able to buy spots into. While doing the break we got to the Hall of Famer tell us incredible stories about:

  • Advice to young kids like fundamentals 
  • How he dealt with failure 
  • Thoughts on how to beat the SHIFT
  • Why he believes pitchers break down 
  • A name drop of Mark Teixeira and thoughts on weight training
  • A great and funny story about Thurman Munson 
  • Busting on bad or illegible autographs 
  • Calling current managers "glorified babysitters" and why (oh boy does Goose hate analytics!)

Goose doesn't hold much back! Check out the video:


Goose was live and brought the heat; we LOVED it. Whether you agree with his takes or not, Goose was a great interview and kept it real. We loved the note about baseball is a game of failure. When you fail 7 out of 10 times, you're a star in baseball. The only other person that could fail 7 out of 10 times and be successful is a weatherman.

No love for analytics, current managers, and how the game is played today either. Goose is old school and he lets you know it! 

After breaking 2021 National treasures for you, we gifted Goose a pack of 1979 O-Pee-Chee to break and he pulled a pack-fresh Ozzie Smith rookie card! Take a look at Leighton's reaction:


Thanks for joining us, Goose! If you would like to try to pull your own Ozzie Smith rookie card, we have spots available in our 1979 OPC pack break here:




Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot on the site, the price you see is the price you pay. Taxes and shipping are included!  Your cards always come protected in holders.  The last time you mailed a package out had to have set you back more than three bucks, right?  If you buy a $3.00 spot, you get your card holdered and shipped for that price.

Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do.  If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution.
