#304 George Hendrick
Why this card is awesome: Because this might be the only card in the set to feature an empty folding chair in the background. It's a bit tough to see, but it's there.
Cool stat: This is kind of weird. Hendrick had 119 PAs against Steve Carlton (his most against any pitcher) while runner-up Bill Lee faced Hendrick 78 times. That's a huge disparity. That's more than 50% additional PAs against Lefty than against Spaceman. I wonder why? The fact that he hit Carlton so well must have had something to do with it.
