#49 Dave Clark
Why this card is awesome: Because Dave Clark is holding two bats. It seems to me that he should have either been holding one bat like a normal ballplayer, or five bats that we could have called the Dave Clark Five.
Cool stat: Clark was selected by the Indians in the first round of the 1983 draft. Now, in any draft, lots of teams make mistakes. It's interesting to see some of the other players taken in the draft after Clark: Roger Clemens (#19 overall to Boston), Dan Plesac (#26 to Milwaukee), Bill Swift (#29 to Minnesota), Chris Sabo (#30 to Cincinnati), Dave Magadan (#32 to New York NL), Rich Amaral (#34 to Chicago NL), Joe Oliver (#41 Cincinnati), #58 Rick Aguilera (#58 to New York NL), Wally Joyner (#67 to Anaheim) and a bunch of other good players in later rounds.
