#173 Eric Plunk
Why this card is awesome: Because they made Plunk look like such a piece of rubbish, I can't believe it. He looks unshaven, unkempt, and unhappy. At least they could have airbrushed up his face a little bit.
Cool stat: Since 1901, for relievers who pitched at least 1000 innings, Plunk makes the top 15 for fewest hits per 9 innings. He's ahead of the likes of Lee Smith, Jeff Reardon, Kent Tekulve, and Guillermo Hernandez.
