Sammy Sosa, 1991 Studio (Studio Saturday No. 4)

Name: Sammy Sosa
Team: Chicago White Sox
Position: Outfield
Value of card: The joy of an innocent smile
Key 1990 stat: One Sharpie mustache
The fur flies: Before Sammy Sosa became a home run-hitting hero for the Chicago Cubs, he was an animal-loving outfielder on the city's south side. After arriving in a trade from Texas, Sosa opened up a shelter for abandoned creatures. Sammy, however, was never the sharpest tool in the shed, and began taking in more than just lost cats and dogs. Soon, Sosa's chicken-wire cages were filled with ferrets, raccoons, porcupines, a handful of wolf spiders and one ill-tempered mole rat. In fact, a mischievous badger can be seen atop Sosa's head in the above photo. Sosa called it Lamar.
