#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.
