#545 - Lloyd Moseby
What a card: Lloyd Moseby was pretty much at the peak of his career when this card came out. His 1984 season wasn't quite as good as his '83 season, but he led the league in triples and stole a career high 39 bases.
My observation on the front: Opposite field double down the line!
More opinion from me: Why is Lloyd spelled with a double L?
Something you might know: Moseby was the center fielder in a highly praised outfield that included original "Killer Bees" George Bell and Jesse Barfield.
Something you might not know: Moseby featured a notoriously weak throwing arm, and in a 1989 Sports Illustrated poll of third base coaches who were asked which outfielders they would advance runners against the most often, Moseby was mentioned along with Chili Davis and Willie Wilson.
My observation on the back: The write-up there is a little presumptuous. It's entirely possible that if Moseby stuck with catching he would have still made it to the majors.
