#171 Cubs Leaders
Why this card is awesome: Because, OMG, after all the talk...here is Manny Trillo! And a bonus shot of a very fresh-faced Shawon Dunston.
Cool stat: This isn't a stat so much as a little bit of amazement. Check out the names on this 1988 Cubs team, one of the best assemblies of talent ever: Mark Grace, Ryne Sandberg, Shawon Dunston, Andre Dawson, Rafael Palmeiro, Greg Maddux, Rick Sutcliffe, Jamie Moyer, and Goose Gossage. That two guys already in the HOF (Sandberg and Gossage), one shoo-in (Maddux), one guy who probably would have gotten in if not for all the steroids stuff (Palmeiro), oen guy who has a decent shot of getting enough votes one day (Dawson) and a handful of other all-stars and Cy Young winners.
