Todd Hundley, 1997 Fleer Team Leaders

Name: Todd Hundley
Team: New York Mets
Position: Catcher
Value of card: A rusty pair of scissors
Key 1996 stat: Only half his jersey buttons buttoned
Unfortunate moments in card design: It's hard to tell it here, but there's no actual white border to the left of Todd Hundley's face. Yes, the 1997 Fleer Team Leaders cards went beyond Photoshop cutouts      they were actual cutouts. You, too, could rub your fingers along Mr. Hundley's masculine cheeks and eyebrows! So, knowing that, here are a few things we can take away from this about this catcher's mug:
  • His face was craggier than Mount Rushmore.
  • His 'brows could have used a little work. OK, a lot of work.
  • His cheekbones could have sliced through diamonds.
  • The left third of his hat was either missing or dead.
