Repack Haiku #287 (Doug Jones)

All but one of his
Three hundred plus career saves
After age thirty
1988 Topps #293 Doug Jones (RC)
Not only was Jones a late bloomer, but this rookie card came six years after he made his MLB debut for the Brewers in 1982!


  1. Do you know if anyone else has that many saves after the age of 30?

    1. Probably. I looked at just Mariano Rivera, and he had over 500 saves after he turned 30. Of course, he also had well over a hundred before he turned 30 too.

  2. Dang. That's such a crazy piece of baseball trivia. Mo's 500 after he turned 30 is even crazier.
