#41 Bob Melvin
Why this card is awesome: Because of some great photographic deception. When you look at this photo, doesn't Melvin look like a pretty small guy? But if you check the back of the card, you'll learn that he's actually towering at 6'4".
Cool stat: In 1985, Melvin became one of the tallest catchers to ever play the game (that list uses a minimum 100 games played.) Eight guys come in at 6'5", then Melvin is one of 21 at 6'4". He's got to be one of the tallest managers ever, too.
