#306 Billy Hatcher



Why this card is awesome: Because while I guess that's a glove hanging on the dugout wall, I swear it looks a lot like a disembodied head floating there. Seriously..it even looks like it's scowling. (You'd be scowling too if your head were severed from your body.)

And, oh yes, this is one of the very rare cards in this set featuring Expos in the background. (Thats a joke, in case you aren't a frequent reader.)

Cool stat: Hatcher is among just a handful of players to have a season with at least 53 SB but single digits for CS. Tony Womack did it twice!!

The guy started every game of the 1990 World Series and hit .750 (9 for 12) if this series goes longer than a sweep, it could have been one of the greatest WS performances ever. And he wasn't even MVP.

OK, seriously, why are there so many background Expos shots? I'm pretty sure Topps employed no more than 4 photographers, with one of them being based at Expos spring training.

I think Andy should add a Background Expos Counter.
