#746 Gene Larkin
Why this card is awesome: Because, my friends, love him or hate him, that is actually George W. Bush pictured. Seriously.
Cool stat: Larkin is by far best remembered for the game winning hit in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, widely regarded as The Greatest World Series Game Ever Played, thanks in large part to Jack Morris' 10-inning CG. Larkin had 3 other walk-off hits in the regular season, all singles, including a 2-run come-from-behind job off Gene Garber.
