Charles Assmann, 1998 Jogo CFL (Football Friday No. 176)


Name: Charles Assmann (despite what it says on the card)
Team: Edmonton Eskimos
Position: Linebacker
Value of card: Says "ASSMAN" on it, so there's that
Key 1998 stat: Jokes about his name still weren't old
Four things about this card:

1) Yes, it's real.
2) Charles Assmann was an actual football player who spelled his name with two n's. And, frankly, that's even funnier than the misprint on the card.
3) On its top-of-the-line website, Jogo proudly hails its status as the second-longest running North American sports card producer behind Topps      and, apparently, it has inherited some of Topps' quality control people, as well.
4) Hee hee, Assman.
