#649 DeWayne Buice
Why this card is awesome: Because this card has Buice's name wrong. His first name is "De Wayne," with a space, not DeWayne without a space.
Buice had a short major league career, but played a lot in the minors. More importantly, he holds a much greater significance to baseball card collectors, as one of the major forces that helped Upper Deck get off the ground. See here for more.
Cool stat: In the last 30 years, Buice cracks the top 25 for fewest hits per 9 innings in a season with at least 110 IP exclusively in relief.
