#481 Mariano Duncan
Why this card is awesome: Because I sure hope he's bunting. Otherwise, he's choking up way too much!
You probably don't remember, but Duncan was the starting 2B on three different World Series teams: 1990 Reds, 1993 Phillies, and 1996 Yankees. And he was with the Dodgers in 1988, but in the minors, after getting demoted in 1987. (It's rare to see a player with so much big-league experience get sent to the minors, but it also happened the other day with Chris Duncan of the Cardinals.)
Cool stat: Duncan hit multiple triples off 3 pitchers. And, whoa, look at his career numbers off Lee Smith! They include a go-ahead grand slam in 1993.
