Free-agent blog The Hall of Very Good has signed with Bloguin. Due to the late date of the transaction, Topps will have to airbrush the Bloguin logo onto HOVG’s cap for it’s next Traded/Update set.
Hopefully it comes out better than these ten terrible airbrush jobs of the past.
Random Fact: Before Williams became a Hall of Fame manager, he successfully appeared on the television quiz shows The Match Game and the original Hollywood Squares.
Random Fact: Grimsley's likeness is immortalized as the logo for some website.
Random Fact: In 1970, Brabarkewitz set the Los Angeles Dodgers' team record with 148 strikeouts. That dubious honor would last until 2008.
Random Fact: In 1974, as a member of the Atlanta Braves, House caught Hank Aaron's record-setting 715th home run while in the bullpen.
Random Fact: Based on his 1977 Topps card, Jones, seemingly, had some pretty nice hair.
Random Fact: Minton went three full seasons (269⅓ innings) without allowing a home run until John Stearns homered against him on May 2, 1982. This still is the longest such streak in the post-1920 live-ball era.
Random Fact: In 1982, Woods played in 117 error-free games for the Chicago Cubs.
Random Fact: In 1983, Denny won both the National League Cy Young Award and Comeback Player of the Year.
Random Fact: According to some, Laga is the only player ever to hit a foul ball out of Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
Random Fact: During his 12-year career, LaPoint pitched for nine different big league teams.
What card did we miss...which one was the worst? Let us know in the comments below! And as always you can follow Bo over at his site Baseball Cards Come to Life.
The 2010 Topps Heritage Roy Halladay has to be one of the worst overall airbrush jobs over the past few years -- which is saying a lot given the massive error Topps made when airbrushing his 2010 Topps Opening Day and leaving his uniform number as "32."
@BaseballFreaks Thanks for the mention!
@BigHairPlasGras Thanks for the love, Dan!
1988 Topps Tito Landrum is always the first that comes to mind for me: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41c879yxx6L._SL500_SS500_.jpg
Stevo Sama...that entire Cap'n Crunch set is awful. http://www.comc.com/Cards/Baseball/1989_Topps_Capn_Crunch
it's not on a card, but the Topps Capn' Crunch Brett card I have at home (sorry, I don't have a scan to share right now) is almost as bad as this...*almost* http://d3j5vwomefv46c.cloudfront.net/photos/large/750054077.jpg
@HOVG 1977 Rick Jones was so airbrushed it looks like they airbrushed embalming fluid in him.
This isn't baseball, but it's arguably the worst Topps airbrush job ever. Warren Jabali is posing in live action wearing a Denver Rockets uniform. Another player on the court is wearing a New York Nets uni, and the home team is Indiana, according to the scoreboard. http://www.comc.com/Cards/Basketball/1973-74/Topps/220/Warren_Jabali_AS1/1386611
i started a painted book years ago.nice to look at something that ugly.the 87 topps box panal of steve carlton is pretty bad
@KevinBassStache Dude was COMPLETELY airbrushed.
@HOVG Our pleasure, you're one of our favorite baseball websites out there!
