#509 Bill Dawley
Why this card is awesome: Because as if confusing the names Dawley and Dayley isn't enough, Topps gave the two damn near identical cards. Check it out.
If Dayley had been a righty, they might have been totally indistinguishable.
Cool stat: Dawley's name is mostly forgotten in baseball history due to his short career, but he was one of the top relievers in baseball from 1983 to 1986. In fact, over that period, for relievers with at least 300 IP, he makes the top 10 for ERA+.
