You're in the presence of greatness: Well, here it is. This is the most interesting card in the 1990 Bowman set. Cast your gaze upon it. It's the pinnacle of a mountain peak that's below sea level. Sure, it's a face shot, but he's turned to the side. Wow. Turned to the side: genius. And, unlike most of the cards in this set, the player isn't wearing a spring training batting jersey. What a treat. What. A. Treat. Bowman was even kind enough to throw in an uneven mustache, a sopping-wet mullet and a cheek full of chew. What gifts these are for the collector. And, don't look now, but there are actual people in the background, not just blurry primary colors. What will they think of next? (Answer: nothing.)
