#148 Carmelo Martinez
Why this card is awesome: Because the trade described on the back is wrong. If you check out here and scroll down, you can see that this was actually a three-team trade involving Martinez, Lefferts, Sanderson, Connally, plus Gary Lucas and Al Newman. Plus, this card has a bonus shot of Joey Cora in the background!
Cool stat: Martinez had 5 two-homer games. They all came with the Padres, and his team won them all.
