Jim Abbott, Hitter

Jim Abbott, who only had one hand, pitched for 1o seasons in the big leagues, including one in the pitcher-hitting National League. Abbott's 1991 Upper Deck card features him buntingAnd the back of the card shows him on base, different at-bat (check the batting gloves):In Abbott's last season, he pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers and got to the plate 24 times. He collected two hits (both singles), three sacrifice bunts, and three rbi.

Pretty cool!
