(I'll get to the third part of Dennis' post eventually...have some randomness to share in the meantime).
I was scanning COMC the other day, and I came across a fairly rare James Baldwin card. This made me realize that I really want a card of his for my collection - I remember him fondly as the White Sox ace back in the late 90's, and though he wasn't actually all that great (career ERA of 5.01 with one all star appearance) I still think he always seemed pretty awesome. So I looked around for a good card to buy up for my collection.
This one is the one I may eventually grab:
This one is the one that's absolutely terrifying:
I mean...what's happening here? Does he have gum in his mouth? A baseball in his mouth? Did Action Packed paint his mouth white for some creepy effect?
More importantly, can he breathe? This looks less like a guy on a baseball card and more like a choking victim who needs some CPR. Truly bizarre.
Anyways, you're welcome for the nightmares!
