Tim McIntosh, 1991 Upper Deck

Name: Tim "Mylanta" McIntosh
Team: Milwaukee Brewers
Position: Catcher
Value of card: Two Tums
Key 1990 stat: 147 belches in one game
Mylanta's worst niche-marketing radio ad of 1991: "Being a catcher is tough. You spend nine innings squatting, night after night. Foul tips ricochet off your arms, legs, chest and neck. You get spiked on slides into home and have an umpire's junk rubbing on your shoulder for months. If that weren't enough, catchers get indigestion. (A burp is heard, then Mylanta theme music plays for eight seconds.) You're a catcher. You waddle to first base. You eat liverwurst sandwiches. Your thighs are squished like a pack of hot dogs between your shinguards. But that doesn't mean you can't feel good when you're on the diamond. The next time you're feeling bloated behind the plate, put down the sign for Mylanta, your best bet to find relief from heartburn, acid indigestion, sour stomach or gas."
