#28 Jose Nunez

Why this card is awesome: Because of the snippet on the back about Nunez regarding being a member of the Dominican team in the Pan Am Games as his greatest baseball thrill. These days, it seems to be all about the money, and it's nice to remember a time when all players placed a high value on national pride.

Cool stat: Nunez didn't have a very long career, but one amusing stat I found was the two batters he gave up multiple homers to: Joe Carter and Sam Horn.

REMINDER: We have a giveaway going on currently for cards 1 to 25 of the 1988 Topps set. Please read this post to enter the contest.

When your career ERA to date is 5.01, it's probably not surprising that amateur baseball will be your highlight.
