Jorge Bell, 1986 Topps

Name: Jorge "George" Bell
Team: Toronto Blue Jays
Position: Outfield
Value of card: One used blue jay nest
Key 1985 stat: 162 naps
Catching some Z's: After hearing reports that Ken Griffey Jr. missed a pinch-hit appearance because he was sleeping in the clubhouse, we here at the Bust were perplexed. What's the big deal? Jorge Bell used to sleep all the time during games. Here we see him shortly after being roused from a nap on the dugout bench, hat askew, sleep crust still in his eyes. Sure, he was diagnosed with narcolepsy after passing out in left field in 1988, but that was just a technicality. With as much work as he put into his Jheri curl, he had to get at least 10 hours of shuteye a day just to battle the exhaustion.
