#474 Tom Brookens
Why this card is awesome: Because of the cool reflections in Brookens' glasses. It's common these days to see baseball card photos with reflections in mirror-type sunglasses, but I don't recall seeing stadium reflected in regular eyeglasses.
Cool stat: Brookens is one of 8 players to get at least 3000 AB in the 1980s and have an OBP under .300.
