Von Hayes, the infamous “5 for 1″ and the namesake of many a fantasy baseball team in the greater Philadelphia region.
From Baseball Reference:
Lanky, phlegmatic Von Hayes came up with the Cleveland Indians, a sleeper as a seventh-round pick in the 1979 amateur draft
but an OBP machine in minor-league ball. The Phillies liked Hayes
enough to trade five players for him in the winter of 1982-83 (Manny Trillo, Julio Franco, George Vukovich, Jay Baller, and Jerry Willard). This exuberance unfortunately tagged Hayes with the nickname “Five-for-One,” and he played undistinguished baseball for the 1983 NL champion Phillies.
The photo on the back of the card is priceless, after the jump.
