#482 Mark Davis
Why this card is awesome: Because has a bit of a sly look on his face, almost as if he's a year or so away from putting together an awesome season in his free-agency year and then taking on a huge contract that nearly singlehandedly would ruin one of baseball's greatest franchises. If you don't know what I'm talking about, try to figure out the top 5 reasons why the Royals are so bad now after being such a great team in the 1970s and 1980s.
Cool stat: Over the years of his career (1980 to 1994, not counting his brief reappearance with Milwaukee in 1997), Davis is one of just two guys to post multiple seasons with at least 40 IP and an ERA over 7.00. Way to go, Kansas City.
