#99 Chuck Finley
Why this card is awesome: Because you can't look at this card without laughing. Finley looks like a 19-year-old college student with a fake mustache trying to convince a liquor store cashier to let him buy a six-pack of Bud Light. Finley's also got a great name for a Spoonerism.
Cool stat: Finley was really hurt by being on an Angels team that was pretty crappy for many of his years there. His real career record is 200-173 (.536.) His neutralized career record is 208-156 (.571.) Just 8 more wins, but also 17 fewer losses. Oh, and he was money for St. Louis at the end of his career in 2002, helping them go 9-5 in 14 games he started. Oh, and he was also once married to her.
