#629 Kelly Downs

Why this card is awesome: Because this is the second straight Giants card, I guess because Dave Henderson was slotted at #628 before he got traded from the Red Sox. Oh, plus Downs is standing in front of a huge circle honoring retired HOFer Willie McCovey, #44. Pretty damn cool.

Cool stat: Downs has one of the most recent seasons with at least 6 complete games, including at least 3 shutouts, but still with a below-average ERA.

Other cool stat: Downs was apparently active in the year 4 A.D.
