#10 Ryne Sandberg

Why this card is awesome: Because of some very subtle airbrushing. Take a look in the dugout behind Ryno's legs. There's a guy sitting there who looks like he's giving the photograph the finger, but his face is just kind of faded out.

Cool stat: Sandberg loved hitting at Wrigley. Check out his batting splits: He batted 31 points higher at home, and slugged 79 points higher at home. He had 164 HR and 607 RBI at home and 118 HR and 454 RBI on the road.

The comments on the back of the card say it all. One of the best trades ever made by the Cubs and sure shows how the hiring of Dallas Green paid off.
