#656 Lee Guetterman
Why this card is awesome: Because, wow, Topps was digging deep for those stats on the back. If they are mentioning somebody ranking tenth in something, it would be nice if it were something like all-time wins by a lefty, not in ERA in one season in some minor league.
Cool stat: Since 1901, just two pitchers have had two seasons with an ERA above 7 over at least 60 innings. Guetterman is one, and surprisingly Hideo Nomo is the other.
