#302 Jose Uribe
Why this card is awesome: Because I get the feeling that this photo was taken while Uribe was filming a commercial. He's standing in front of a green screen so that his image can later be superimposed on some bizarre background. Seriously, I have no idea why the photographer thought this was a good idea for a shot.
Cool stat: From 1984 to 1993, Uribe had the 6th-lowest career OPS+ among players with at least 3000 PAs. What I remember most about Uribe is that he wore Air Jordan's number 23.
Deceased players and managers: 10
Uribe was on the Giants Leaders card recently and we noted there that he passed away a few years ago.
