#347 Joe Johnson




Why this card is awesome: Because there's a bit of a deer-in-the-headlights look about Johnson. Perhaps he knew that by the time this card came out, his major league career would be over.

Cool stat: Here are the guys that Johnson faced the most. Ryne Sandberg practically made it to the HOF based just on his ABs against Johnson.

His mitt looks like he just came back from the store with it. And he looks like he just realized that while he was at the store everyone else on the team left for lunch without him.

So Johnson was traded to Atlanta for Acker and Acker was traded the following year for the infamous Francisco Cabrera.
