#242 Tom Niedenfuer
Why this card is awesome: Because aside from the ridiculous pose Niedenfuer (can we call him "Needy" for short?) is in, I again find it amazing how many fans' faces we can make out in the background. I would love to hear from one of those fans who saw themselves on this card.
Cool stat: Wow, what a 1983 Neidenfuer had. In fact, since 1970s, he had the 7th most IP for a season with a WHIP under 0.890. Neidenfuer had only 1 or 2 other good seasons, though.
Side note: That Pedro year in 2000 really sticks out, though. How in the hell did he not win MVP?
