#10 - Butch Huskey
Back photo: N/A.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 13.
Wiki-facts: Real name is Robert Leon Huskey.
Baseball miscellany: Was one of the players to be grandfathered in with regards to wearing #42. It also repeats the factoid from the back of the card about making his debut on the losing end of a no-hitter.
How was his strike-shortened 1994?: Spent the entire year in the minors.
Birthday boy: Born November 10, 1971. Shares a birthdate with former big leaguer Terry Pearson. Strangely, despite a far shorter big league career than Huskey's, Pearson makes the wiki list of people born that date.
Ties to my Personal Collections: Played for one of the teams I collect, and I have one of his autopgraphs out of Leaf Signatures.
Next up: #11 - Mark Hutton
