#174 Phil Garner

Why this card is awesome: Because while I'm sure there are other examples, this is the first card I can remember seeing with flip-up sunglasses so clearly and prominently displayed. Also, this is the second card from the last three featuring a future manager.

Cool stat: Garner has his most career PAs, far and away, against two guys: Jerry Reuss and Steve Carlton. Interestingly, he hit very poorly against Reuss and very well against Lefty.

Scrap Iron was a key part of the wheel that was the Fam-a-Lee in '79

Phil for Johnny Ray? Good Trade.

Scrappy looks SOOO much better with the mustache. Without it, he's any ordinary player.
