#697 Steve Lombardozzi

Why this card is awesome: Because like 600 cards ago, some reader named Jeff was counting down until Lombardozzi's card. Well here it is, Jeff!

But seriously, I think this is the only card other than Larry Parrish where the full last name of the player featured on the card is visible on the back of his uniform. I might be wrong about that, but these are the only ones that come to mind.

And mind you, getting all of "LOMBARDOZZI" visible in a photograph while he's batting ain't easy.

Cool stat: Lombardozzi is somewhat remembered thanks to being part of the championship Twins team of 1987 (and hitting very well in that World Series.) In the regular season, he managed a few 4-RBI games and the Twinkies won them all.

You can see Jack Clark's name on his card too.

A couple of pitchers but not as good too, Tim Crews, Dave Palmer, maybe Jim DeShaies
