#423 John Smiley

Why this card is awesome: Because sometimes the obvious comment is the one you need to make: it's so ironic that the one thing John Smiley is not doing on this card is what his name says.

See this post at The Ugly Baseball Card blog for more on this classic card.

Cool stat: Matt Williams just absolutely OWNED Smiley, hitting way more homers off him than anybody else did.

smiley was one of my favorite buccos hurlers of the late 80's/early 90's. After winning 20 games in 91, he went out for the FA market (along w/bonilla)....

he made a good transistion to the AL for one year. I never did see him smile.
