#652 Bruce Benedict
Why this card is awesome: Because Benedict's career was built the way they should have been. He was a Braves lifer as a backup catcher. Here's a bonus cool stat for you: catchers who played their entire career for one team (minimum 1000 PAs.) Despite retiring after 1989, Benedict is the 6th most-recent catcher to do it.
Cool stat: Benedict had just 18 career homers, and he hit 2 off one guy. You'll never guess who.
