#501 Tim Birtsas
Why this card is awesome: Because I believe this is an uncorrected error card. The rest of the Athletics cards in this set have a purple name banner, whereas this one is blue. I don't recall ever hearing that this was an error card, though, like Garry Templeton's.
Cool stat: Since 1901, Tim's 1990 is the 4th-worst season with at least 50 IP and a league-average or better ERA, ranked in terms of WHIP.
