#169 Ross Jones
Why this card is awesome: Because of the fact that everybody in the background is looking at somebody off-camera. They couldn't be bothered to watch Jones being photographed (and Jones can barely stand it, judging by the look on his face.) I like to imagine that Bo Jackson was walking over there, distracting everybody.
Also, wouldn't you swear from this photo that Jones was a pitcher?
Also, that's two Jones cards in a row for Topps.
Cool stat: Why does Jones look like a pitcher? Well if you check out his minor league numbers, you'll see that he did pitch in the minors, including full time in 1988 and 1989 after failing to make a go of it as an infielder. Wow.
