#174 Phil Garner
Why this card is awesome: Because while I'm sure there are other examples, this is the first card I can remember seeing with flip-up sunglasses so clearly and prominently displayed. Also, this is the second card from the last three featuring a future manager.
Cool stat: Garner has his most career PAs, far and away, against two guys: Jerry Reuss and Steve Carlton. Interestingly, he hit very poorly against Reuss and very well against Lefty.
