#403 Tim Raines All-Star
Why this card is awesome: Because Raines hit .330 in 1987 but was buried 40 points behind Tony Gwynn. If not for Gwynn, Raines might have gotten the recognition he deserved.
Raines didn't do so well on the HOF ballot last year (his first year of eligibility) but he will make it in around 2013. Mark it down. He's one of my all-time favorite players.
