135 - Orel Hersheiser


135 - Orel Hershiser

Front: Pitching.

Back: Pitching.

Better side: A repeat battle from last time, but at least there's a rather unique angle on the back. And that is enough to give it to the back.

Ties to my personal collections: He would have one season with the Mets in 1999, and get a few cards with them to end his career in 2000.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 47

Wiki-facts: "Hershiser is the only player to receive the Cy Young Award, the Championship Series MVP Award, and the World Series MVP Award in the same season."

How was his strike-shortened 1994? 6-6 with a 3.79 ERA. Perfectly average. 

Birthday boy: September 16, 1958. That's the same as former St. Louis Cardinal Greg LaFleur. That's the football version, not the baseball version. He's the only one in the *-reference world that matches with Orel. But, that is the same date as actress Jennifer Tilly. Jennifer also as a poker database profile.  

Next up: 136 - Phil Hiatt
