#145 Bill Madlock
Why this card is awesome: Because it's one last glory shot for a retiring warrior, as this was Madlock's last card. Special bonus awesomeness for Topps catching another weird person in the background, and this time having that person actually overlap Madlock's photo. Is that guy carrying a bowling ball bag? Or a medical kit?
Cool stat: The 1985 Dodgers lost the NLCS to the Cardinals, but it wasn't Madlock fault, as he got 8 hits in 24 at-bats, including a double, 3 homers, and 7 RBI in 6 games.
