#502 Danny Gladden
Why this card is awesome: Because I know there are at least six people who think it's cooler to get a tour of empty seats than it is to check out Dan Gladden. They are in the background of this photo.
Cool stat: Gladden was not a great player, but he did do some things very well. From 1984 to 1991, just 5 players (including Gladden) had at least 4 HR, 1 3B, and 15 SB every year. The other four were some nice company: Juan Samuel, and current or future HOFers Ryne Sandberg, Rickey Henderson, and Tim Raines.
