#451 Keith Atherton

Why this card is awesome: Because this is the opposite of all those shadowy-faced cards we've seen. Here the photographer has a light shining right on Atherton's face. Does a great job of lighting it up, and also of making him squint.

Cool stat: Over his entire career from 1983 to 1989, Atheron was the majors' leading mop-up guy. Among those who finished at least 150 games, none had fewer saves than he did.

200 innings in 1982 in the minors and then bam zero career starts. Also, he was the better player in the trade from Oak to Minn, who woulda thunk it?
