696th Place - Cecilio Guante
I just noticed something that has me reconsidering Gaunte's lower ranking on this countdown. Check out the "G" inked into the webbing of his glove! Is that cool, or dumb? Many of you are aware of the cult-like following Guante enjoys: http://legendofcecilioguante.com/
This card is a bit disturbing. I'm assuming Guante is in the middle of some warm up pitches. Otherwise, the umpire and shortstop are in prime position take a line drive right off the back of their heads.
I think Topps made a bizarre color scheme choice for the Yankees in this set. The red/purple/yellow combo doesn't make a lot of sense. It's not you, Cecilio, it's them.
