#265 Bo Diaz
Why this card is awesome: Because if you've been reading this blog for a while, you should have already spotted what's awesome about this card. Another freakin' Expo in the dugout! I swear like 30% of this set features either an Expos player or Tiger Stadium.
Cool stat: Diaz had 77 career homers but 5 games with 2 homers, which is a high ratio. His team won 4 out of 5 of those.
Deceased players and managers: 9
Weird how the deceased players seem to come in bunches. Diaz passed away in 1990 while working on a satellite dish. This card comes just a few after Jose Uribe made an appearance.
