#441 Rick Manning
Why this card is awesome: Because Manning didn't play past 1987, you see his entire career stats on the back of this card. It's odd to see a guy start so young (age 20) and then end when he did (32.) Seems like most guys who make it to the bigs before age 21 either flame out by age 25 or last until 38 to 40.
Cool stat: Between 1975 and 1986, only three players had at least 2 HR, 1 3B, 1 SB and 1 sac hit every single season. Manning, Yount, and Frank White.
