1989 Topps Major League Debut #53: Mike Hartley
PHOTO: Wow, this is a rarity. It's pretty unusual to see entire trees in card backgrounds that are not palm trees.
STAT: Hartley has one of the most recent seasons with at least one shutout and one save while pitching no more than 80 total innings.
Hartley was late to the bigs, not appearing until age 27. Despite pitching pretty well in his last few years, he was done by age 33.
