#422 Dave Concepcion
Why this card is awesome: Because Concepcion sure looks like a coach in this photo, hitting infield grounders. He wasn't retired as a player quite yet, though.
I like that this set has both the Reds' SS of the past (Concepcion) and the Reds' SS of the future (Barry Larkin.)
Cool stat: Here's an awesome trivia question. Name the only 6 players to homer every season from 1970 to 1987. Concepcion is the really hard one. The easiest one is Reggie Jackson. The others are somewhere in between.
Concepcion is not in the HOF but I hope he is one day. It would have to come from the Veterans Committee at this point.
