#478 Sid Bream
Why this card is awesome: Because that gold stripe around Bream's waist is remarkably unflattering. Also, the guy in the dugout in the background appears to be wearing a tuxedo.
Bream was a decent player, most associated with the Pirates, but is best-remembered for a play he made with the Braves:
In case you were living under a rock in 1992, this was the final moment of the NLCS that year.
Cool stat: From 1986 to 1992, Bream was one of 8 1st baseman to have double-digit homers at least 6 of those years. By no means was he one of the top 1Bs during that time, but he was solid.
