Fun facts about Mickey Tettleton and American painter Jackson Pollock:
  • Jackson Pollock was renowned for dripping paint on the canvas. Mickey Tettleton was renowned for letting the last few drops drip down his pants.
  • Pollock's work has been displayed in the MoMA. Tettleton's trophies are still on display at his mom's house.
  • One of Pollock's most impressive works was "No. 5 1948." Tettleton once took an impressive No. 2 after eating 1,948 doughnut holes in a day.
  • Pollock's art has been the subject of much critical debate. Tettleton's play was also the subject of much criticism.
  • Pollock died in 1965, and was thus spared from the ridiculous 1990 Donruss Diamond Kings subset, including this Tettleton card.
