#500 Andre Dawson
Why this card is awesome: Because of a nice action shot. Dawson looks like he's just taken a massive cut, as he always did at the plate. My only regret about this photo is that it didn't capture Dawson's glare. You, know, like this shot:
Cool stat: The Hawk is one of the members of the 400-HR, 300-SB club. The other two? Barry Bonds and Willie Mays. Nice company.
Dawson didn't make the HOF in 2008 but he got very close with 65.9% of the vote. Next year, Jim Rice and Rickey Henderson will probably make it in, and Dawson should make it by 2010 or 2011. In my opinion, he is quite worthy.
