#320 Alan Trammell

Why this card is awesome: Because that's an awfully strange bulge in the side of his uniform leg. That's all I'm sayin'.

Cool stat: I loved Trammell as a player but all you folks supporting him for the HOF need to calm down. He was great but is not Hall-worthy, and it's not even close. But his 1987 was one for the ages. Since 1940, it was one of just 6 seasons where a player had 100 RBI, 100 runs, a .340 BA, and 20 stolen bases. Of course, Darin Erstad did it too, so it can't be that great.

erstad did it, for one year. That's it. One and Done.

It will be hard for Trammel to get the votes.
