1988 O-Pee-Chee #194 Alex Sanchez
Why this card is awesome: Because Sanchez was able to hold still and smile despite two huge fuzzy black caterpillars walking across his forehead. Reminds me of Julio Cruz. By the way, this is not the Alex Sanchez who was the first player suspended under MLB's steroid policy.
Cool stat: Sanchez made just 4 major league starts, and like Nate Minchey, his first was his best. Despite giving up 5 hits and 5 walks in 6 innings, he allowed just 1 run and left the game tied. David Wells came in, pitched the last 3 innings, and got the win.
