Arthur Rhodes, 1995 Topps #289

Unbeknownst to most fans, Arthur Rhodes wrote reminders and inspirational tips on the underside of the bill of his cap. When he was in a jam on the mound, he'd be able to take a peek at the cap and give himself a little boost. On this particular day, he stepped aside, pulled off his hat, and read his own handwritten words of wisdom:

"Eggs, milk, 1/2 pound sliced ham, Lucky Charms, grapes, orange juice-"

Damn! He'd been unable to find a piece of paper the night before and had grabbed the nearest flat surface while putting together his shopping list. It would be a long game...
