#753 Danny Heep
Why this card is awesome: Because you get a nice shot of that patch on the Dodgers uniform. And, leave it to Topps to find a way to get a guy's entire face in the shadows except for the tip of his nose. Consequently, they've made Heep look a bit like Pinocchio in this photo.
Cool stat: Heep was the ultimate part-time player for most of his career. From 1982 to 1989, he and Mickey Hatcher tie for most seasons appearing in 80 to 120 games.
