#68T Ricky Jordan
This photo was probably taken at the same game as Bob Dernier's since they're both at Wrigley.
For Phillies fans, this was a great card to have in 1988 as Jordan ripped onto the scene that year (but unfortunately never became a decent full-time player despite a career OPS+ of 103.) Oddly, Jordan's full real name is Paul Scott Jordan.
I was tempted to choose "slick", "fluke", or "heroics" as the odd word here, but in the end, I went with "Maine", a word I think you see less often on a baseball card than those other three.
