I know what you’re thinking about Joe Lis …
Why do we need to see the baseball cards of a player who collected less than 200 hits in an eight-year big league career?

That’s a lot better than I did.
Plus, he ended up being a transplanted Hoosier.
Plus, plus, he’s just about the poster boy for terrible 1970s baseball cards.
