#329 Chris Speier
Why this card is awesome: Because that's gotta be a posed shot. He's looking way up, as if it's a popup and yet doesn't have his legs or glove positioned properly. Boo.
Speier is the proud papa of current major league pitcher Justin Speier, who has had a very nice career.
Cool stat: Speier was a very well-liked player but he was not very productive offensively. For players from 1971 to 1989 with at least 2000 games played, he had the 3rd-fewest total bases. And he had more games played and plate appearances than the two guys behind him.
