#427 Paul Kilgus
Why this card is awesome: Because I've bitched about shadows a lot, but this has to be the worst shadow on any card in this set. I mean, you can't see the top half of Kilgus' face AT ALL. Some might say that's a good thing, but not me.
Cool stat: Kilgus was pretty good in 1987 and 1988, and pretty rough in 1989-1991. But 1993 was a weird year. He pitched to a 0.63 ERA with a 0.907 WHIP at just age 31, and yet never pitched again. In fact, Kilgus had the most IP in a final season for a pitcher 31 or younger, with an ERA and WHIP both below 1.00.
