#448 Mike Davis
Why this card is awesome: Because in 1988, the year of this set, Mike Davis had perhaps the second most improbable plate appearance of the entire season. Shame on you if you don't know what I'm talking about. But if not, here's a clue: it immediately preceded the first most improbable plate appearance.
Cool stat: Davis will long be remembered for that walk. In his career, he himself had 2 walk-off plate appearances (winning ones, that is.) Just for comparison, he had 42 other walk-off plate appearances where his team lost.
