#36 Jamie Moyer
Why this card is awesome: Because it features some guy who looks just like current Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer, only about 20 years younger. And because this June, Moyer will have been a pro ballplayer for 24 years. And because 20 years ago, he led the NL in earned runs allowed, but is still pitching today.
Cool stat: The only guy to win 20 games in a season at age 38 or older more times than Moyer was Warren Spahn. Check it out here. Spahn did it 4 times. Moyer and some guy named Cy Young did it twice. And lots of other guys have done it once.
