#514 Pat Sheridan
Why this card is awesome: Because you've gotta love the combination of Sheridan bunting, the extreme teeth-bearing face, and those massive eyeglasses. Sweet!
Cool stat: I always think it's weird when they show batters bunting, unless the guy either bunted a lot for base hits, or if he's a pitcher who often sacrified. For example, I would have LOVED to see a card showing Rod Carew bunting. But anyway, for the main part of his career (1983-1989) Sheridan ranked just 126th in sacrifice bunts. So why show him bunting?
