Kevin Roberson, 1994 Upper Deck Electric Diamond

Name: Kevin Roberson
Team: Chicago Cubs
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Two finger guns
Key 1993 stat: 4-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio
Here's looking at you, kid: Kevin Roberson is a hall-of-famer. I don't care that he hit .197 in four partial seasons in the majors. I don't care that he struck out more times than a nervous freshman at a homecoming dance. I don't even care that he once trotted out to left field wearing a replica Bulls jersey because he left his Cubs uniform in a cab on the way to Wrigley. That, my friends, is a hall-of-fame pose. Not only is Roberson giving us the two-gun salute, that smile could melt butter — and hearts.
