#773 Frank Williams

Why this card is awesome: Because Williams is oh so close to giving the finger to the camera.

Cool stat: Williams, interestingly enough, was one of the top relievers of the 1980s. In fact, among non-closer, only my man Mark Eichhorn had a higher ERA+ for guys with at least 400 IP.

Frank hasn't had a good life after baseball. He's been in and out of drug treatment centers and lives as a homeless man in Vancouver. There was a guy on www dot sportscollectorsnet dot com that had a contact with Frank and did a private signing with him earlier this year (pretty cheap) as a way to get him a little spending money.

Most guys do OK after baseball, but there are guys like Frank that don't.
