  1. In my opinion, Randy Johnson was as “top-shelf” as you could find of all MLB pitchers and whenever he took the mound, he was heavily favored to win the game he started! As good as any ever in my opinion. You have an unbelievable baseball card collection here my buddy! It is “unbelievable!” Best to you—Pete Goddard 8/4/16
