#1 Vince Coleman Record Breaker

Why this card is awesome: Because Vince Coleman looks like a chameleon. I don't know why Topps decided to make the Record Breaker backgrounds red in 1988, but Coleman virtually disappears on this card.

Cool stat: Since 1957, Coleman is #1 for most games out of the first 50 in a career with at least one stolen base. You can read all about it here and see that over those 50 games, Coleman stole 42 bases.

The good old days of the Stolen Base artist. Three years of 100+
