#513 Tim Flannery

Why this card is awesome: Because if he had been a great player, his Bermanism could have been Tim "Flannery will get you everywhere."

Cool stat: Flannery hit just 9 career homers, but four of them came off guys who won at least 1 Cy Young award (Sutcliffe, Carlton, Jenkins, and Hershiser.) I wonder how that ranks in terms of highest percentage.

Remember when he and the great Jerry Royster platooned with the Padres and they were known as "Timry Flanster"?

Flannery is best known for his other 1988 baseball card: Fleer, where he posed with a surfboard. Wha?
