#524 Gary Lucas

Why this card is awesome: Because, wow, his cap looks to be about 6 sizes too large. I think maybe he has a ham sandwich under that thing.

And, this is the second Gary card in a row.

Cool stat: Lucas pitched in some bad luck in 1982. That was one of just 10 seasons since 1956 where a pitcher who pitched exclusively in relief had an ERA+ of at least 105, got 10 or more losses, and no more than 5 wins. And Lucas had the lowest W-L% of all. There are some good names on that list, including Lee Smith who did it twice.

Sort of the opposite of Mitch Williams.
