#7 Benny Santiago Record Breaker
Why this card is awesome: Because it calls him "Benny." In this day and age, players are tending to use more formal versions of their names, but 1988 is long ago enough that they still snuck "Benny" in there. Most of the rest of the cards in his career have him down as "Benito."
Cool stat: The 34-game streak ended up being quite a fluke. Looking at the longest hitting streaks of Santiago's career, his next longest streak was just 13 games.
