Julio Franco, 1992 Donruss Triple Play

Name: Julio Franco
Team: Texas Rangers
Position: Second base
Value of card: One smack on the rump
Key 1991 stat: 28 sexual harassment claims filed against him
Inappropriate behavior: A year after losing his soul mate, Rangers second baseman Julio Franco had finally moved on with his life and began again playing the field, if you will. Unfortunately, Franco's social skills had eroded, leaving him prone to interpersonal gaffes. Here we see a confused Franco about to smack the rear of a nameless opponent — the Bust does not identify victims of sex crimes — or as he called it "slapping the tag." This maneuver not only failed to get him any action, it also got him beaten up by the Milwaukee Brewers bullpen after the game.
