#485 Harold Reynolds
Why this card is awesome: Because in early 1988, this card was big news, or at least the fact that Harold Reynolds led the AL in steals in 1987 was. Rickey Henderson had led every year since 1980 and in fact also led 1988 through 1991., until Kenny Lofton ripped off 5 years in a row. Oh, plus the blurry assembly of people on the left looks sort of like Jar Jar Binks.
Cool stat: Reynolds' 1986 is one of the 10 worst seasons since 1901 in OBP with at least 30 stolen bases. That sums up Reynolds' career right there. Fast guy, great baserunner, but couldn't get on base enough to be very valuable.
