#255 Mookie Wilson
Why this card is awesome: Because of the great action shot, and the guy in the dugout making a rude gesture. (Mind you, not a rude gesture you see these days, the hand-under-the-chin F.U., but it was common back in 1988.)
Cool stat: I know the story behind it, but I still always find it hilarious when I see that Wilson is both the stepfather and uncle of Preston Wilson. (See here.) Mookie's 1983 is one of just 21 seasons with at least 100 Ks but fewer than 20 walks. Oops.
