Hey all,

I thought it would be fun this time of year to bring back an old hobby of mine, which was collecting unintentionally funny looking cards! At my old job, I had a board outside my office that I would hang cards on, and the heading was "What Was Topps Thinking?!?" I gave that collection to a friend of mine, so am looking now to see funny cards you have in your collections, or that you have seen before and want to include here!

@FunnyAthleteNames you may have some great additions to this thread!

These were a few favorites from back in the day, starting with Billy Ripken's very famous and controversial F--- Face card!

A romantic picnic on the ball diamond, why not??
I also would NOT consider Ed as a Great of the Game!

Another 90s oddity!

"Grow it, show it....long as I can grow it, my hair!!"

A variation on the Brock-a-brella!

Mickey Hatcher seemed like a nice guy, but with a glove that size, it makes sense that he could boast a .979 lifetime fielding percentage!

A few more fun cards:

When he wasn't throwing fire, Orel liked to juggle in his spare time!

This guy was 36 when this photo was taken. He looks like good ol' Grampa really!

Wally had the uni-brow of the century!

Lowell looked like Ray Liotta with those shades.....

I mean seriously? Here's Ray in Goodfellas, the resemblance is uncanny!

And one more celebrity look alike...s-l500.jpg
Frank Howard in this card photo looks just like Gomer Pyle from the Andy Griffith Show!

Uncanny....or as Gomer would have said "Shazam!"

Truly NOTHING screams "80s baseball " quite like the moustache/scraggly hair/large glasses combos featured here!

Even their kids and grandkids didn't collect their cards these years.....

Brooks seems to not be feeling well here!

Glenn had a pet that he brought to the ball field....and the Phillie Phanatic looks like he is sneaking up on him....just a LOT going on in this card photo! Seems an almost Bill Veeck-style stunt, shameless promotion that makes baseball great!

I cant tell if Donnie is rolling his eyes or praying in this card photo.....I think praying that Dave Henderson isnt coming up to bat again!

So we played our own version of Old Skool Baseball Card Challenge today, and it was a blast!

All 3 of our children played, and had a lot of fun.....their favorite category was the Moustache/Mullet Category!!

Bill had some big hair, wonder how he fit a ball cap on his head??

Jose looks like the left side of his moustache is significantly thicker than the right! #razorslip

Grimacing a little in this card, Todd literally topped it off with an ill-fitting cap over all those curls!

If you look closely, Joel's dentures look like they are sliding out!!

Wow Fred, now THAT is a moustache!!

Kent looks like Barney Fife with tinted glasses about to sneeze right here!!
