#621 Gene Nelson
Why this card is awesome: Because, wow, this card is pretty damn similar to Dennis Eckerlsey's. See here:
Cool stat: Nelson was an important part of the playoff A's teams of 1988 to 1990. In 1990, he also posted one of the lowest strikeout rates ever for a guy with 70 IP and an ERA+ of 230 or better. He posted another good year in 1993 but then retired.
