#693 Benny Santiago
Why this card is awesome: Because this is a pretty cool shot. Bats in the bat rack, Benito picking out his weapon of choice, and the "P" in "Padres" almost complete covered, just like the "O" on Lee Lacy's card.
This is the first of two cards in pretty quick succession to feature good ol' Benito.
Cool stat: Here's a wacky and wild bit of trivia for you. Santiago is 5th all-time in HRs for a guy who played for at least 9 franchises. If you can get more than 1 of the 4 guys ahead of him, consider yourself a baseball trivia expert.
