#46 Darnell Coles
Why this card is awesome: Because of the stupefied look on Coles' face. Again, I hate picking on players, but maybe he's confused over how he went from a .273 BA and .453 SLG in 1986 to a .201 BA and .369 SLG in 1987. I also like the closeup of the pirate on the uniform.
Cool stat: What do Keith Creel, Drew Hall, Mike Hartley, Rick Langford, and Greg Minton have in common? They all gave up a homer to Coles in their only career at-bat against him. That's a 5.000 OPS. (Coles got a couple of walks in there too.)
