#9 Andy Hawkins
Why this card is awesome: It's easy to pick on Hawkins' appearance in this photo, but what really makes the card awesome is the very simplistic, under-grown spring training foliage in the background.
Cool stat: Hawkins was involved in a famous no-hitter-that-wasn't when his Yankees lost 4-0 to Chicago in a game in which he went the distance and gave up no hits. I wrote a post about this, and other such games, here at B-R.com SOTD blog.
