#757 John Marzano



Why this card is awesome: Because this card had more baseballs on it than any other card in the set! I count at least 5 for sure.

Cool stat: Marzano's home run log is pretty interesting. Of his 11 career dingers, 4 came off 2 guys, and those 4 were the first 4 he ever hit, coming in the first 13 games of his career. After that, he sprinkled 7 more off 7 different guys.

Deceased players and managers: 19

Jeez, that looks like the same batting cage that Yaz was standing in front of for his 1975 Topps card.

Holy crap, I didn't know Marzano had died. I have no idea how that news got past me.
