#96T Nelson Santovenia

The back of the card would seem to contain an egregious error. It says that Santovenia and Rafael Palmeiro were the only Cuban-born players in the majors at the time. Right off the top of my head, I came up with Jose Canseco, who was born in Havana and was certainly in the majors in 1988. Checking out this list, we also see Orestes Destrade, who has a rookie card coming up in this set, as well as Tony Fossas and Barbaro Garbey.

Best word on the back is "smarts."
