#27 R.J. Reynolds
Why this card is awesome: Because it's such an obvious error card--R. J. is missing the cigarette in his mouth. Seriously, does anybody understand why he was named after a famous & wealthy tobacco farmer?
Cool stat: Reynolds had a short but fairly productive career. He is one of just 14 players with at least 100 SB and 250 RBI who appeared in no more than 800 games. And three of the current guys--Coco Crisp, Chone Figgins, and Felipe Lopez--are almost certain to exit that club by eventually passing 800 career games. (In fact, the could all pass 800 games in 2008.)
