#226 Dave Lopes
Why this card is awesome: Because of another poor card number choice. I realize that Lopes wasn't playing much (or very effectively) toward the end of his career, but I probably would've tried to give him a little better card number than 226. I also find calling him "Dave" weird. I've never heard of him called anything other than "Davey."
Cool stat: Lopes had more seasons of 40 SB and 10 HR than all but 5 other guys. Not bad. Can you name the 5 ahead of him? I bet you miss at least one. Here's the list.
