#550 Pedro Guerrero
Why this card is awesome: Because imagine that Guerrero isn't holding a bat in this photo. What's he doing, then? And what's that dude in blue jeans doing in the background? Looks like he's practicing putts on a golf green.
Cool stat: Only 3 guys had at least 32 homers 3 different years from 1982 to 1985. Guerrero did it 3 times but Mike Schmidt and Dale Murphy did it all 4 years.
It's also worth noting that while Petey missed the 1988 World Series since he got traded to the Cardinals mid-season, he absolutely raked against the Yankees in the 1981 World Series.
