#243 Mark Ryal

Why this card is awesome: Because there's so much orange and blue on this card, it really seems that Ryal should be playing for the Metropolitans.

Cool stat: Ryal had one multi-homer game, and he came in as a pinch-hitter! He smacked 2-run homers in the 8th and 9th innings, although the Angels lost. Actually, 48 guys have had 2 or more homers in a game when coming in as a sub. See more about this here.

And yet they did blur out these fans. Maybe Topps had a guy evaluating whether the fans were pleasant enough looking to stay on the card.
"That guy's got one big nose. He's off the card!"
That would be fun to yell.
