If Kenny doesn't pay attention, he's going to run into that foil Upper Deck logo. Oops...too late. It looks like he is running from that grey haze on the left. And what position does it say he lays in the upper right. Oh yea, he plays "f". All they needed to do was reverse all the graphics and it would be a perfectly acceptable Kenny Lofton common.

It isn't as ugly as this one, but there is definitely some ugly stuff going on. This Astro runner may have been safe, but he will be OUT for a while! Ouch!!!
Maybe Piazza just lost his concentration because all of that gold foil!
Got a worse Piazza or a worse Rose? Send me a scan!

But this is nothing new. Topps has been pulling these stunts for 30 years.
Check out this 1971 Topps Jim Fregosi card!
I didn't know Tricky Dick was an Angels fan!
Editor's note: I was going to pluralize Fregosi, but Fregosis seemed like some rare skin disease that I wanted no part of.
Hope you enjoy the card!

I bought this card when I was 10 years old at Tom's Coins and Antiques in New Bern, NC. I think I paid $35 for it. I wanted an old cigarette card and was happy to get one of the best pitchers ever to play the game. Christy Mathewson was one of the first five inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame.
I will never have the card graded but I assume it would be a 1. No matter, it's my favorite card and probably always will be. I just got the book, The Card, about the famous Honus Wagner card and look forward to reading it this summer.
Now my second favorite card is a 1987 Pat Sheridan, but I'll save that for a later post!
