#54 Jim Clancy
Why this card is awesome: Because of two eyes as wide as saucers. I love the concentration and exertion!
Cool stat: Any baseball stats geek worth his or her salt will already know that Clancy is the losingest pitcher of the 1980s. I hope it goes without saying that this means he needs to be a pretty good pitcher, actually. After all, other guys in the top 10 for losses in that decade include Jack Morris, Dave Stieb, and Nolan Ryan. For example, as you can see from this list, Clancy pitched extremely well in 1980 and still got tagged with 16 losses.
