#205 Nelson Liriano

Why this card is awesome: Because this is a VERY old-school photo for this set. And a nice advertisement for Franklin batting gloves.

Cool stat: Liriano finished his career with more triples (27) than homers (25.) Here are non-active players who finished with 25 or more triples as well as 25 or fewer homers. Liriano is the 9th most-recent player to do it. Jerry Browne, whose card we saw recently, did it too.

Amazing how a .260 career hitter with no pop can hang around the majors for so many years.
