What's in the Bag? (A Guessing Game)

There's a gallon-size plastic bag that has sat in my baseball card area for going on two years now. I want to give them away. Am I too lazy to sort through them to put them into half-finished sets? I guess. Keep reading if you want them.

To win these cards here's what you have to do:
1. Guess a player that has a card (or cards) somewhere in this pile. I'm estimating about 200 or so cards. Again, too lazy to sit and count them.
2. Once you've picked a player, guess how many cards of that player can be found in the pile.

The winner is the person with the correct guess that is closest to the actual number of cards in the lot. Easy enough?
An example guess would look like this: Derek Jeter 3
You may guess one player, and one player only. You cannot guess Al Woods, who is featured on the top. And you may not guess that a player has zero cards, you cheating bastard.

A few clues that may or may not help you:
A. I think those 1981 Fleer are the oldest cards in the lot. Not sure if you can tell, but there are a few more.
B. Oddballs? Why, yes.
C. These cards are about as random as they come. An ex-friend of my wife gave them to me.

I'll keep the contest open until some time on Monday. Good luck to all!

That's not a guess -- that's a guarantee. In fact, I'll go so far as to say there's gonna be 2 of him on the Tigers and 1 gem of him on the Jays. That bag just reeks of late-'80s/early-'90s mojo.
