#311 Scott Sanderson



Why this card is awesome: Because other than a touch of black, the is the most red, white, and blue card I've ever seen. OK, there's a touch of orange too, in the upper left.

Cool stat: Since 1978, for pitchers with at least 2500 IP, Sanderson is 8th in fewest walks per 9 innings. He still ended up with a very average ERA, and one wonders what his record would have been like if he had a closer-to-average walk rate.

Ah, this maybe the first of the Sandberg, Sundberg, Sanderson trio.

Nope, Ryno was the 3rd regular card in this set all the way back at #10.
