Cory Snyder, 1989 Donruss Diamond Kings (Dreadful Diamond Kings Week No. 5)


Name: Cory Snyder
Team: Cleveland Indians
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Much less than you'd need for an arcade game
Key 1988 stat: Hold on, we can't focus
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start: Sure, Cory Snyder is so ugly he broke the Donruss printing press, causing his portrait to be out of register. But the real story here is the background. We imagine that coming up with varied, colorful backgrounds for a couple dozen cards every year can be challenging, but it looks like Mr. Perez just gave up on this one. It's clearly just a screenshot from "Asteroids." What's next, Cal Ripken Jr. over a scene from "Pitfall"? Edgar Martinez and a background of "Ms. Pac-Man"? John Kruk and "Burger Time"? OK, we could see that one.
