757th Place - Steve Crawford
I didn't catch it the first time I looked at this card, but there is some extreme patriotism going on here. Squint your eyes and look to the right and you'll see Old Glory billowing in the wind.
Crawford was a career bullpen guy who I always remembered for his poofy, curly hair squirting out from under his hat. He rocked that moustache with confidence too. Crawford logged one of the Red Sox wins in the ill-fated 1986 World Series even though his ERA for the series was above six.
I'm going to throw in a "gratuitious product placement" for this card too. That Starter zipper tag almost looks like a blinging chain.
