#220 Tom Henke
Why this card is awesome: Because of those sweet glasses. Do you think it was worth it to the Rangers to lose Henke in exchange for Cliff Johnson in 1985?
Cool stat: Henke was an absolute stud. He had a rough 28 innings in 1984, but otherwise the rest of his career was stellar. After 1984, the lowest ERA+ he posted was 127, and he finished at 156 for his career. Here is the full list of all pitchers in history with at least 700 IP, a WHIP under 1.1, and ERA+ over 150. Just four guys. The other guys are all HOFers, probably.
