#2 Don Mattingly Record Beaker

Why this card is awesome: Because it's nice to get a bonus Mattingly card, but it's extra-nice to get a bonus shot of Rickey Henderson, a likely HOFer next year.

Cool stat: While Mattingly hit 6 grand slams in 1987 and had 222 total home runs in his career, he never had another grand slam in any other year, finishing with just those 6. Check out his home run log here and notice the breakdown of baserunners for each homer.

That is a weird, but very interesting, grand slam stat.
This is a fun site!

He never had another grand slam after 1987!
