    "It reminded me of Dick Baney. I used to laugh because he was a 'rookie star' on both the '69 and '70 Topps sets"

    And 1974, where he was featured Bob Apodaca, John D'Acquisto, and Mike Wallace. This card is somewhat notable because there are two variations of of it...one misspells Apodaca's name "Apodaco." The corrected version is a little less common.

        Is it just me, or does Bob Buhl look insane (or maybe hopped up on eight or nine cups of coffee) on his 1967 Topps card?

        Ed Kranepool's 1999 Fleer Sports Illustrated Greats of the Game card shows him with a picnic lunch, too.

        (BTW, I'd scan more of these if my scanner wasn't a POS.)

              Actually, I think Dick Stigmen looks like Lurch from the Adam's Family.

                Forgot...

                The original T2 "Turkey Red" Cabinet set (upon which Topps Turkey Red was based) featured a hilarious card of Hughie Jennings in his famous "Ee-Yah!" rally pose, standing on one leg with both hands in the air and screaming. Then again, Jennings ALWAYS did that during rallies. Two funnier cards from before WWII are 1936 Goudey Fine Pens and 1939 Play Ball cards of Al Schacht, "The Clown Prince of Baseball." Both have him in his clown get-up, though the 1939 card is funnier IMO.

                  I also remember a card I used to have of Lenny Randle attempting to blow a ball foul. I think it wasn't a true 'action shot' of him when he actually tried it in a game, but was a recreation that was printed for the Topps card. I could be wrong about some of this, but I do remember the card. I don't paste pictures so I don't have it to show, sorry.

                      The Don Mossi Card

                      AMC was running The Godfather again a couple of nights ago. Looking at Mossi made me flash on Abe Vigoda as Tessio after his betrayal is dealt with:

                      "Tom, can you get me off the hook? For old times' sake?"
                      "Can't do it, Sally."

                        Fun, but diminished because they're intentionally "zany." The true winners here are off the wall without even trying.

                          "Funniest photo is the one where the photographer moved around until he positioned a drain pipe at the spring training facility right between Bill Buckner's heels"

                          I like that card as well. Pretty funny. That's why I had Bill autograph it.

                            Wow, I forgot about this thread! Two of the cards I've received so far in my eBay splurge this month have actually been unintentionally zany and fall into the category of uncorrected errors.

                            The first is 1975 Topps Rookie Stars, which includes Keith Hernandez (he and Phil Garner are the card's two key rookies...it also features Bob Sheldon and Tom Veryzer). On the back of the card, it said Keith threw left...and batted right. Mex was of course a very good LEFT-HANDED hitter.

                            Number two is 2007 Bowman's Best Chris Coghlan FYC AU. For those that don't know, Coghlan is a pretty good second base prospect in the Marlins system and played in the 2007 All-Star Futures Game. Topps of course listed his position as "catcher." Although not as egregious an error as Keith Hernandez batting righty, for those of you who've seen Coghlan's defense...well, let's just say it makes about as much sense as putting Moises Alou behind the plate.

                              Thank you, I was afraid I was going to die without seeing that card again :bowdown: I'm kinda surprised he signed it, did he say anything?
