#276 Luis Salazar
Why this card is awesome: Because of another weird background. Sure there are a couple of Cubs there, but there's also a chubby guy wearing a white shirt and khaki shorts.
Cool stat: Salazar was a pretty poor basestealer, and he had one game where he got caught stealing twice. The Padres lost by one run, and Salazar was CS after getting on base to lead off the game, and CS again the 8th during a potential rally. In his career, he had 117 SB, but only a 69% success rate.
