who's that other guy?

one of the fun things (i think) about cards is seeing players other than the main subject in the picture. i really hoped that topps would use that picture of pete rose with steve garvey in the background after getting hit number 4192 on a card, but they didn't.
anyway, you get a lot of other players pictured with the double play turns (shawn green)and plays at the plate (dave martinez),but sometimes you find them on other cards too.

sometimes they are hall of famers, sometimes they are rookies who will go on to be hall of famers, and sometimes they are camera whores who will shamelessly take up space on your rookie card.
here's to you, background lurker.
