#573 Bob Stanley
Why this card is awesome: Because --
STOP THE PRESSES
I have discovered something about this card that I suspect is unique in the long and glorious history of baseball cards.
The background of this card features a POPSICLE. Yes, a POPSICLE.
Cool stat: Stanley is mostly remembered for his role in the 1986 World Series debacle. But from 1977 to 1985 he led all of baseball in most seasons with at least 80 IP and an ERA+ of 112 or better. He was one of the finest pitchers in the game back then.
