#80T Mark Grace
Mark Grace is one of those guys who looked the same on his last baseball card as he did on his first baseball card. His body shape was the same and he aged very well. This is a nice photo, except for the poor batboy who is blocked by Grace's knee.
The card back is pretty interesting to read. Richie Zisk thought that Grace had 25-HR power, but he never topped 17 HR in any season.
Best words on the back? The phrases "good head" and "best looking." Heh.
Interesting to see 3 other players mentioned on the back too: Zisk, Chris Gwynn, and Keith Hernandez.
Grace had a great career but will never make the Hall of Fame.
