Funny Baseball Cards

Baseball season is officially under way.

I just picked up some Cubs tickets from the University Illinois alumni association...and I'm excited for that game as well as some Rockies games here in Denver.

What brought this subject to mind however was something I saw online last night about goofy looking baseball card photos...

Several were shown, and most of them featured old hairstyles, etc. Two stuck out as funniest to me: Greg Minton and Steve Trout, (I'm old enough to remember the ex-Cub, Trout.)

See below:

You can easily see what qualifies them as "goofy" photos.

Then, in a whole group of images of baseball cards, after doing a search for Steve Trout on Google, (not in a search for "goofy bb cards") I found this guy:

He has to be one of the most primitive looking guys I have ever seen.

Those eyebrows are one seamless line of furriness in the top card.

 Based upon this, you could argue that we are not as far from our Neanderthal days as we think. (My wife and daughter would agree, as I often look worse than this after I first wake up.)


  1. Ha ha ha!!! That is LOL hilarious!

    The guy on the bottom is a strange looking dude, and yes, primitive looking.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it.

    As for the last player, is it me, or does he look like a relative of Josh Brolin?


Let me know if I can answer a question.
