583rd Place - Ray Searage
Wow - this card was four slots from being the last in the set. That's a close call! Kinda reminds me of this. (Sorry, I have Star Wars on the brain - I'm headed to Rogue One Thursday night!)
You gotta hand it to Ray Searage - he sure looks like a charismatic dude. These kind of posed shots were never my favorite as a kid, but that's an infectious smile peaking out from behind that caterpillar lip. The green trees, blue skies, white clouds...heck, I even detect a glimmer in his eyes!
It's almost enough to make me ignore the hideous hat he's wearing. I know I've teed off on these hats before on the blog, but good lord, is there a worse hat in the history of MLB? The cursive "c" that looks like an "e" is so repulsive!
Ray is still rocking a 'stache and smile these days - he's the pitching coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates!
