#282 Pat Perry
Why this card is awesome: Because Perry is standing in front of something weird...a barn? An airplane hangar? Also, he's the first of two quick cards coming up featuring Reds in the PEE PEE club, i.e. first and last initials both "P." (Let me assure you that the PEE PEE club has nothing to do with...oh never mind.)
Cool stat: Perry didn't have a long career, but he wasn't bad. Spanning 1985 to 1990 (his entire career), he makes the top 25 for fewest hits per 9 innings among pitchers with at least 100 IP. Go, PEE PEE, go!
