#288 Pat Pacillo
Why this card is awesome: Because the background of this card is truly spectacular. There are FIVE, count 'em, FIVE different Reds in uniform in the background, all doing different things. Sometimes you see clusters of players in the background all doing one thing, but here they are all on their own. And that must be 1988 NL ROY Chris Sabo right behind Pacillo (it's the glasses, man.)
Also, this is our second and final Reds pitcher in the PEE PEE club.
Cool stat: Pacillo gave up 9 career homers, including 2 to Dale Murphy. This was his last card as he stuck in the bigs for just 2 seasons.
