#706 Rick Mahler

Why this card is awesome: Because of the mention of fantastic scout Al LaMacchia.

Cool stat: Mahler is tied for the lead in most career seasons with exactly 39 games pitched.

Deceased players and managers: 17

We went almost 150 cards without a deceased person, but Mahler died in 2005 from a heart attack. He was just 51.
