Mike Cook, 1986 ProCards

Name: Mike Cook
Team: Midland Angels
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: Half as much as it would be worth if this guy ever made it to the big leagues
Key 1985 stat: 33 long, sweaty Texas bus trips
Angels' scouting report on Midland's Mike Cook: "Mustache is big league, but that's about it. ... Has Texas-size dreams, Rhode Island-size talent. ... Replace the second O in his last name with a C, and at least you have a few clubhouse laughs. ... There's a star in Texas in the team's logo; it's not this guy. ... Photo above actually taken during one of his starts. Fans knew he wasn't worth the price of admission. ... Cook? Yup. That would have been a better career choice."

Bruce Smith, 1991 Score Sack Attack (Football Friday No. 80)

Name: Bruce Smith
Team: Buffalo Bills
Position: Defensive end
Value of card: Outdated technology
Key 1991 stat: One bad Photoshop cutout
Clearing up some rumors about Bruce Smith:
  • Bruce Smith did not use radar to track down quarterbacks. He used sonar.
  • This cutout of Bruce Smith is not poorly done. It just shows his blue aura.
  • Score is not mixing metaphors by using radar and cross hairs on this card. It actually has a contract with the Department of Defense.
  • Bruce Smith is, in fact, screaming "Friends! Romans! Countrymen!" while chasing down Ken O'Brien.
  • "Sack Attack" is not also the name of a mid-1990s adult feature. Oh, wait, yes it is.



Willie McGee, 1984 Donruss

Name: Willie McGee
Team: St. Louis Cardinals
Position: Outfield
Value of card: A fall from the ugly tree
Key 1983 stat: Yet to reach full ugliness
Good lord, man: Everyone knows how Willie McGee stole so many bases: He was so ugly, his face slowed down time. But how ugly was he, really?
  • Willie McGee was so ugly, when he tried to join an ugly contest, they told him, "Sorry, no professionals."
  • He was so ugly, his teammates used his face for batting practice.
  • He was so ugly, MLB made him wear a catcher's mask in center field.
  • He was so ugly, his wife came to work with him so she didn't have to kiss him goodbye.
  • He was so ugly, his face was scored as an error.

Gene Garber, 1980 Topps

Name: Gene Garber
Team: Atlanta Braves
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: Who wants to know?
Key 1979 stat: Eyebrows constantly furrowed
It's just sad, really: How little did Gene Garber trust other people?
  • He hired a private investigator to follow the bat boy.
  • Rather than take signs from his catcher, he would just yell out what he was going to throw.
  • He personally signed off on this card to make sure Topps got the "good side" of his beard.
  • He cut his own hair.
  • Every time an infielder made an error, he'd scream, "I KNEW IT!!!"
  • He constantly pitched from the stretch just so he could shift his eyes back and forth.
  • He wore a jacket under his uniform. Sorry, that's got nothing to do with trust issues, it just looks ridiculous.

About me: Well, hello, ladies. They call me the Eck, and I'm looking for a wreck, a wreck like you. You see this baseball? How would you like me to sign this for you, then throw it really, really fast? My baseball skills are well-known, but it's my bedroom skills I think you'll be interested in. See this mustache? Want to try it on for a few minutes? It'll only cost you a lip lock. Muah. What's that? You're a little jealous of my flowing man mane? Ha, well, that's OK. Everyone is. Let's cut the chit-chat. You. Me. A pile of one-dollar bills. Lost amid a hurricane of hair. You want to play ball with me? Just get in the box, and let me get into yours.

Team: Chicago Cubs
Positions: Pitcher, second base, outfield, respectively
Value of card: One C-note (if "C" stands for "crap")
Key 1979 stat: One set of parents
Time for a strikingly similar version of The Matchup:
Round 1: Brown hair grown slightly over the ears (Three-way tie)

Score: Geisel 1, Macko 0, Pagel 0, Ties 6

Synopsis: Despite changing their names in an effort to avoid the media attention that would be thrust upon major league triplets, it's obvious these three came from the same mother, within a few minutes of one another. Lucky for Geisel, he found a fake mustache on the dugout ground, allowing him to take the glory of a Matchup victory from his flesh and blood.

Name: Jeff Kunkel
Team: Texas Rangers
Position: Infield
Value of card: You know that piece of gum stuck under your desk? Half of that

Transcript of Big League Chew commercial, circa 1991: "Hey, kids. Do you like to blow? Do you like to pop? I'm little-known Major League Baseball player Jeff Kunkel and I sure do, and I know you do, too. (Cut to shot of Kunkel blowing a huge bubble.) So get those mouths a-blowing and and make it pop with Big League Chew, now with a salty aftertaste that the big leaguers — and their wives — can't get enough of. (Kunkel's bubble pops.) You've had regular bubble gum. Borrrinnnggg. Grab some Big League Chew. Your parents' bubble gum is soft and small. The new Big League Chew is long and rigid, and just calls out for you to stuff it in your mouth. (Cut to shot of Kunkel slowly inserting clump of gum strips into his mouth and rubbing it all over his lips.) So start chewing the gum that's bursting with flavor, the gum that the big leaguers love. Blow some Chew, and make it pop."

Name: Chris Zorich
Team: Chicago Bears
Position: Nose tackle
Value of card: The prize at the end of a treasure trail
Key 1990 stat: One drunken laundry mishap
Chicago Bears' scouting report on 1991 second-round draft pick Chris Zorich: "Really seems to hate the Upper Deck logo. ... Knows how to stuff the run, and how to stuff his face with liverwurst. ... It isn't just the uniform — he has a closet full of crop tops. ... During his free time, he makes sweaters out of his belly hair for the poor. ... Will tackle anything that moves. No, seriously, don't make any sudden movements around him. ... Keeps telling everyone he's the bass player for Night Ranger, but we've confirmed this is not true. ... At Notre Dame in 1989, had a team-record 47 break-ups. No, not pass break-ups; he was a real ladies' man. ... Said he was excited to meet The Fridge. We're not sure whether he knows that's a person."


Mark McGwire, 1988 Fleer Headliners

Name: Mark McGwire
Team: Oakland A's
Position: First base
Value of card: As valuable as yesterday's papers

Names: Phils Hiatts
Teams: Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Royals and Kansas City Royals
Positions: Third base, third base, and 3B
Value of card: Three doll hairs (It only took 698 posts to pull out that tired childhood joke.)
Key 1992 stat: Three dudes, lying on one another
The caption: "Phil Hiatt, right, dives for a ball hit down the third-base line while lying on top of Phil Hiatt, center, who's diving for a ball hit down the third-base line while gently placing his genitals on the rear end of Phil Hiatt, left, who's diving for a ball hit down the third-base line in an attempt to hide his on-field arousal."



Pat Perry, 1990 Topps

Name: Pat Perry
Team: Chicago Cubs
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: 6 ounces of bear cub dung
Key 1989 stat: Two genders
You make the call: Cubs management was confused. His teammates were confused. His off-the-field friends were confused. Why the confusion? Was Pat a he? Was Pat a she? Well, it's Pat.

Evidence for him being a he:
  • Shirt-busting biceps.
  • Sweat-drenched mesh.
  • Manly chin.
  • Arms as hairy as an orangutan's taint.
Evidence for her being a she:
  • Features as soft as an angel's wings.
  • Skin-tight magenta undershirt.
  • Matching lipstick.
  • Well-moisturized skin.
Conclusion: With such an even distribution of evidence, it's hard to tell; it's curious to everyone; it's a mystery; it's Pat.

Position: Pitcher
Value of card: The goop scraped off the inside of a pirate's eye patch

Jose Canseco, 1990 Jose Limited

Name: Jose Canseco
Team: Oakland A's
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Less than the faux-neon paper it's printed on
Key 1989 stat: 75,000 gallons of hot-pink ink
Ah, the early 1990s: Now this, dear readers, is a truly crappy card. Look at this thing. It hails from an era of trashy cards seemingly made in some jerk's garage. Want an example of another one? Here ya go. But they don't get much worse than this. Canseco, in all his glory, is wearing a turtleneck and Spandex shorts beneath his baseball pants. Of course, the real star is the hot-pink border, which, according to court records, caused blindness in no fewer than 17 children. The green-black secondary border is a nice touch, too. It nearly matches the color scheme of the A's uniforms. That, of course, would have been too much to ask for. OK, so, random shot of Canseco? Check. Only-in-the-1990s border color scheme? Check. Now only if the card came from a company with an awesome name. Wait ... a ... second. Jose Limited? The card company is called Jose Limited? Well, dear readers, this just qualified as one of the worst cards of the decade.



Ross Grimsley, 1974 Topps Traded

Name: Ross Grimsley
Team: Baltimore Orioles
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: Hat and collar made of velvet
Key 1974 stat: TRADED
Sometimes, Wikipedia says it best: Ross Grimsley was one of the more colorful players of the 1970s, known for his superstitions and often flaky behavior. With the Reds, he was called into manager Sparky Anderson's office and told to stop corresponding with a "witch" who had been sending him good luck charms. Despite being a premier starting pitcher for the Reds, he was traded to the Orioles for Merv Rettenmund, a part-time outfielder, after the 1973 season, largely in part for his constant resistance to the Reds organization's conservative grooming rules. With the Orioles in 1974, he sported a huge mop of curly hair, prominent mustache, and 18 wins.

On Sept. 16, 1975, at Fenway Park, Grimsley, warming up in the Orioles' bullpen, responded to Boston fans' heckling by throwing a ball into the right field bleachers. The ball passed through the protective netting, injuring a Boston fan. The fan later successfully sued Grimsley and the Orioles.

He was accused by Yankees manager Billy Martin in 1977 of throwing spitball pitches using Vaseline hidden in his hair, which was usually somewhat greasy in appearance because of Grimsley's penchant for not showering during winning streaks. In addition to his nickname "Scuz" for his grooming habits, he was also called "Crazy Eyes" and known to wear turquoise contact lenses. Grimsley is now the pitching coach for the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

D) Because he stunk — and not just on the mound.
E) All of the above.


Brian Barnes, 1991 Studio (Studio Saturday No. 10)

Name: Brian Barnes
Team: Montreal Expos
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: Colon blockage
Key 1990 stat: One screw loose
That boy ain't right: Have you ever heard someone talk about a player who "sleeps, drinks and eats baseball"? Well, Brian "Wild Man" Barnes did one of those things. When the Expos found Barnes wandering the Canadian wilderness in the summer of 1984, he was a feral teenager wearing only a dirty loincloth and hunting moose with a spear. The team president took him in, trained him to hurl a baseball instead of a weapon, and soon had a pitching prospect on his hands. There was just one problem: The smell of the ball's cowhide cover made Barnes' stomach growl. Under supervision, he was fine, but left alone, he would devour an entire case of baseballs, grinning the whole time. Despite the team's best efforts, Barnes was found dead on a locker room floor in 1994, red lacing string and pieces of leather scattered around him. During an autopsy, doctors found enough rawhide and twine in his gut to create a line of ladies' handbags.

8) "Hey, what's my jersey number minus 14? C'mon. Goddamn defensive linemen!"
7) "This many times with your sister, Jerry! This many times with your sister!"
6) "And we will go forth and conquer! V for valor! V for vigor! V for victory!"
5) "Whoa, bro. Peace, man!"
4) "Twice you put Icy Hot on my jockstrap! Twice!"
3) "No, no no! I said it stands for what your wife showed me!"
2) "Two hearts, believing in just one mind!"
1) "Utah! Get Montana two!"

  • David Wells was so fat, this is actually two cards.



Paul Faries, 1991 Fleer

Name: Paul Faries (yes, really)
Team: San Diego Ponces, er, Padres
Position: Infielder
Value of card: Yes, his name is really Faries. Stop laughing.
Key 1990 stat: .189 batting average
Tragedy in the making: Poor Paul Faries never had a chance. Between his inability to hit the ball (career .201 batting average), the fact that he was cross-eyed and his unfortunate last name, you have to wonder if he wasn't the recipient of a pity promotion. How long do you think it took after he walked into the locker room and said, "Hi, I'm Paul Faries," before Ed Whitson and the San Diego Chicken had this little guy pantsed and duct-taped to the foul pole?


Jose Offerman, 1991 Fleer

(Studio assistants tackle Montalban, retwist dial. Randolph sits down, drops bat.)
