#128 Johnny Grubb
Why this card is awesome: Because this is such a great-looking card, one of the very best of the 1988 Topps set. Orange Tigers logo, orange border, and an orange uniform. And that dark color on the bottom half of the card matches his helmet. Oh, and Grubb looks like he just ripped a double down the line
Cool stat: This was Grubb's last card, and he had a nice long career. Grubb was one of 4 players to miss triple digits for career HR by just one. Bonus Grubb fact: among players 37 and older, minimum 200 at-bats, he posted one of the top all-time seasons for slugging percentage.
