#633 Barry Lyons
Why this card is awesome: Because this is a sweet, sweet action shot. I assume Lyons is raising his glove for a throw from the outfield, for a play at the plate. Actions shots of catchers are awesome.
Cool stat: Lyons saved one of his best career games for one of his last career games. In his 4th-to-last-game in the big leagues, Lyons hit a 3-run homer, and had RBIs on a single and a groundout. Incidentally, Mike Cameron hit his first career homer in that game for the White Sox's other run. And it was one of Johnny Damon's first games. The only other player in that game still active at this writing is Frank Thomas.
