#240 Lee Smith
Why this card is awesome: Because this is the photo where Smith officially took over from Terry Forster as The Fat Tub of Goo.
Cool stat: I thought for sure that Lee Smith would have had the highest K/9IP for all pitchers appearing in 1000 games. But he doesn't. Firstly, how many of the 13 pitchers to appear in 1000 games can you name? And then can you get the guy ahead of Lee Smith. I bet not. (I couldn't.) Anyway, here is the list.
Smith is not in the Hall of Fame but might be one day.
