#274 Junior Ortiz
Why this card is awesome: Because I think Ortiz (for many years the most famous Ortiz in major league history) was a real fan favorite, despite never putting up huge numbers. For one, he's loved in Minnesota for being part of the 1991 championship team.
Cool stat: Ortiz hit just five career homers, but 3 of them came against the Phillies. Of course, if you check his splits, you'll see that he more PAs against the Phillies than he did against anybody else.
