Tuesday's Tony Gwynn: Ongoing Trivia, Part II

Today's Tony Gwynn (TTG) is a 2005 Topps All Time Fan Favorites, number 113. The card design is based on the 2000 Topps set.

In Sunday's Marvell Wynne 'Ten Trivia Gems' (TTG) post, I made mention of him and two teammates being the first trio in MLB history to lead off a game with three consecutive home runs. I promised to divulge the other two participants today and Thursday. Of course, Tony being the second of the three is no surprise to you since, yeah, he tended to hit second- not to mention that I said I'd drop the second answer on Tuesday instead of the next day. The third guy might be a little bit less obvious but not by much if you think about it for a second. Hint: there is a good reason I'm waiting until Thursday- this Thursday in particular, not just any old Thursday- to post his card...
