#624 Jim Leyland
Why this card is awesome: Because even though this card is 20 years old, current Tigers manager Jim Leyland looks just as old then as he does now. I guess he went gray a little early.
Cool stat: The back of the card is a who's who of late 80s Pirates (duh) and if you're like me, it reminds you of how the Pirates won their division three years in a row but never advanced past the NLCS. Remember, this was before the days of the wild card, so winning the division was a big deal.
