I mentioned this a while ago when I started scanning this stack of cards and posting them here- I love "Leaders" and "Future Stars" sets and "Diamond Kings" type card sets because you look at them thirty years later (these cards are thirty years old!) and wonder "Who the Heck was DeWayne Buice?"
So I googled him. He only played 2 and a half seasons in the majors, BUT he happened to be at the right place at the right time and literally walked into a deal where he became a partner in the Upper Deck Baseball Card company at the peak of the baseball card craze in the late 1980s.
He made WAY more money not really doing much for them than he ever made in baseball. The world we live in is just crazy.
