Armando Benitez, 1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #4

I've actually owned this card for several years, but never looked at it closely enough to notice what Tim observed when he included a copy in the package he sent last week. From the angle shown in the photo, it looks as if Armando Benitez's right arm is missing from the elbow down. Obviously Armando was not actually an amputee, but that sort of thing would be a distinct psychological advantage for a pitcher.

It would have been better for all involved if Armando Benitez's right arm had been amputated in his teens.
