1974 Topps – Gio Gonzalez
Gio was part of the Nick Swisher trade before the 2008 season. Nick did not work out so well, so we look at the players traded for Nick a little different. Gio was one of those pitchers that would have been nice to have in the organization. I liked the design of the ’74 Topps card, and the fact that the owner of the A’s in that timeframe lived in my town led me to make this card.
