Juan Samuel, 1992 Donruss Triple Play

Name: Juan Samuel
Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Position: Second base
Value of card: Not-so-awesome action
Key 1991 stat: Dove back into first base many, many times
Nice try, Donruss: No one's really sure what the point of the 1992 Donruss Triple Play set was, but several of the cards included action shots with the caption "AWESOME ACTION!" The only problem with this particular card is that the alleged awesome action is Juan Samuel diving back into first on a pickoff play. Ooooooooh, how exciting! Of course, this photo had to beat out something else, so here are some of the shots from this Dodger game rejected by the good folks at Donruss.
  • Darryl Strawberry passed out in the dugout after a night of L.A. partying
  • Mike Scioscia throwing the ball back to Orel Hershiser after a called strike
  • Tommy Lasorda patting his belly
  • Roger McDowell trying to give Eddie Murray a hot foot
  • Eddie Murray punching Roger McDowell in the gut
  • Juan Samuel wiping the dirt off his pants after diving back in to first
