#465 Paul Molitor
Why this card is awesome: Because, although I mentioned this already, Molitor got seriously ripped off on his card number. Yeah, he played in only 118 games in 1987, but he STILL led the league in runs scored and doubles while batting .353!! What does a guy have to do to get a card number evenly divisible by ten?
Cool stat: The only guy since 1956 with more 4-hit games than Molitor is Pete Rose. Pick any two guys off this list, and Molitor has more 4-hit games than them combined: Jim Rice, Tim Raines, Dave Winfield, Don Mattingly, Al Kaline, and Barry Bonds.
Hall of Fame count: 32
