#351 Cardinals Leaders
Why this card is awesome: Because any card with Red Schoendienst on it is a good card. I'm not sure what Schoendienst's role was with the team at this point, but he's a welcome sight. And Tony Pena ain't too shabby either.
Cool stat: The 1987 Cardinals led all of baseball in stolen bases by a wide margin. Check out this list, though, ranking 1987 by number of players with at least 5 stolen bases. A bunch of teams had more than St. Louis, thanks mainly to the fact that Vince Coleman himself had 109 SB and Ozzie Smith had 43.
Schoendienst is 85 years old, still alive and (hopefully) kicking.
Hall of Fame count: 23
