Harold Baines, 1992 Donruss Triple Play

Name: Harold Baines
Team: Oakland A's
Position: Designated hitter
Value of card: The gum stuck under the desk at which you're sitting
Key 1991 stat: 188 strands of gum stuck in Baines' beard
Script from Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum commercial, circa 1991: "(Gum bubble bursts in camera.) Hey, kids, Harold Baines here for Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum. I'm a designated hitter on the diamond, but I'm a designated blower everywhere else. (Baines blows a bubble that splatters all over his face. He uses his tongue to get it off.) I blow at home. I blow in the car. I blow in the store. I blow on the streets. I blow in alleys. I blow in bath houses. I blow whenever I see a teammate in the locker room. I blow whenever I get the chance. You see, kids, it's all about blowing. And if you want to blow the best, blow Bazooka Joe. You get a good pop in your mouth every time."
