#751 Jim Morrison
Why this card is awesome: Because here we see the final appearance of the giant ice cube that was chasing Barry Jones and Bill Long. Look out, Jim! It's right behind you! Damn, that ice cube really made it around during spring training. I wonder how it survived in the sun for so long.
Cool stat: In 1980, Morrison hit 40 doubles but scored only 66 runs. That's one of the lowest totals in the last 50 years for a guy with 40+ doubles. Chances are, unless he was a terrible baserunner, this had more to do with Morrison's White Sox teammates than with himself.
