#789 Indians Leaders
Why this card is awesome: Because this is our last team leaders card, and it's a great one. As an Indians fan in 1987, I don't think you could ask for a better shot, showing your team's two best sluggers (Joe Carter and Cory Snyder) with weapons in hand. The shot of the lit-up light stancheon in the back is fabulous. This card is definitely one of the very best from this set, and is simply an outstanding photograph.
Cool stat: The 1987 Indians were one of two teams that year to have 3 different guys with 30+ HR. Only the 1982 Brewers also accomplished this feat in the 1980s. As a comparison, 35 teams have done this since 1993, some of them having four guys with 30 HR.
