#574 Graig Nettles
Why this card is awesome: Because, like Ray Knight, it's weird to see Nettles in a jersey from a team like the Braves. We think of him as a Yankee or a Padre, or maybe even an Indian. But not a Brave or an Expo.
Cool stat: Nettles was a very good player. He had a great year or two, but he was very solid. From 1971 to 1985, he had 10 different seasons with a BA between .244 and .276 over at least 400 ABs. That's at least 2 more years than anybody else over that stretch.
