#584 Steve Trout
Why this card is awesome: Because that's got to be the fuzziest guy I've ever seen in the background of a baseball card. He's too fuzzy to be an infielder or baserunner--he must be an outfielder or at least someone shagging flies in the outfield.
Cool stat: Since 1901, Trout makes the top 20 in WHIP for pitchers with at least 1500 IP. By top 20, I mean highest 20. As in, he sucked. It's actually fairly wacky that he managed a career ERA+ of 96 and finished just a few games under .500.
