Big Sam, Big Sam Big Sam. Big Sam? Big Sam!

This 1988 Score card is totally ridiculous. It starts off pretty normal, what with a picture of Sam Horn and his stats and all that. Lower down the card though, things get insane:
"Big Sam, as the Fenway Park fans affectionately call him," is how the card starts. Cool, we know his nickname now, thanks Score!

But then, as if sucking up to Mr. Horn or something, Score uses the nickname again. And again. And again.

All told, the name "Big Sam" appears on this card back 4 times. Sam by itself, or Mr. Horn, or any other variation? Zero times.

It's a good nickname, and I'm glad Score shared the nickname with us, but I don't get why they couldn't vary up their titles afterward. Seems kind of like overkill to me!
