#754 Mike LaCoss

Why this card is awesome: Because of cool stuff in the background. There's another pitcher warming up on the right, and some very blurry stuff on the left. I can't tell if Topps airbrushed that stuff or not.

Cool stat: LaCoss wasn't all that good a pitcher, but he had a few moments in the sun while holding a bat. He has one of the more recent batting seasons by a pitcher with at least 2 HR and 9 RBI.

On his '89 card he displayes the split-finger grip that he owes for any of his career pitching success.

I think that's the TBS logo in the background - it is in Atlanta
