#744 Whitey Herzog

Why this card is awesome: Because it's Whitey!! Some love him, some hate him, but we all know him. This card has pretty unusual coloring, thanks to all the extra yellow in the corner.

Cool stat: Herzog had a pretty unremarkable playing career, but check out his home runs log. Off his 25 career homers, 8 came off two guys: Paul Foytack and Barry Latman. Plus, 15 either tied the game or put his team ahead.

Doesn't he look too old in this card? Compare this to the '89 or '90 Topps cards, and it is a very weird sight.
