Will Clark, 1992 Upper Deck

Name: Will Clark
Team: San Francisco Giants
Position: First base
Value of card: A coach's love is priceless
Key 1991 stat: Zero eye injuries
Actual gameday conversation between Will Clark and Giants first base coach:
Coach: "Will! You get back here right now! You are not going out there again without your eyeblack."
Clark (whining): "But, coach! All the other guys are already out there waiting for me. You're embarrassing me!"
Coach: "I don't care. If all the other guys jumped off a cliff, would you, too? Besides, you know what I always say. It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye."
Clark (huffy): "Coach, that doesn't even make any sense. Fine, hurry up, put it on already."
(Clark stomps back; coach applies eyeblack.)
Coach: "There. Now, put on both these pairs of sunglasses, then you can go run along and play. And, Will — I'm proud of you, Will."
Clark: "That's kind of creepy, coach."
