More Baseball Cards Here! said...

I have been reading this blog for the past half hour - it's hilarious! And I dont even follow baseball that closely! I love your comments about the pictures and the in depth stories behind the weird uniforms or unsightly haircuts.

Keep up the good work.

LOL awesome card. i absolutely loved the proliferation of mullets during the late 80's/early 90's. daulton wasn't even the worst on his team. look at lenny dykstra, or krukky.

What ever happened to this blog? It was so great, and it just disappeared!

Wow, that is funny stuff lol. I never noticed that about that card but the 1989 Fleer Randy Johnson had the Marlboro sign taken off in corrected version, which was an error that I did not hear about when I was a kid, though the 1989 Billy Ripken was well known back then. Maybe expanding on this would provide some trivial entertainment.

I think www.sportZoid.com penny auctions sold this card as a joke during beta testing. - It's a classic!

The two guys alone make that a ugly card. http://basballcardsrule.blogspot.com/

Daulton is a little Peter Griffin like with the family jewels on his chin.

Bob Parker said...

Haha...this card is so crappily awesome. It totally looks like something I would find sitting in my cereal bowl. I like how someone said Daulton looks "tough" in the pic...uh yeah!
