I haven't done this near often enough on the blog. A post about nothing. No topic, just a little fun with baseball cards. So here's a little mishmash of cards and some comments/attempts at humor.
I've heard a lot of talk about rainbows on blogs lately and thought I'd show off one of my own.

Look at those 4 groovy colors, gold, ruby, green and silver. Wait a minute, were they supposed to be all of the same player? I wasn't told this was in the rules. My bad.
On to the next bit of fun.
To those running the Pittsburgh Pirates front office 3 years ago. The Toronto Blue Jays say thank you.

Pitchers have all kinds of quirks or fancy pitches.
Tim Wakefield points to where he's going to throw the ball, and yet only uses his knuckles to hold it.

I wonder if Dioner Navarro hears a train whistle somewhere in the distance....

These next two cards actually appeared in hockey card sets....I swear....
|Anyone know how to say "huh?" en francais?|
The next is a card of Edwin Jackson about 6 teams ago: (OK it was only 4, but still)

You know something, I wouldn't hate the Yankees so damn much if they had more home grown players like this guy: (this is a helluva shot by the way)

Finally, there's nothing better than a couple of guys getting dirty on a ball field.

Sometimes, cards aren't about set building, or photography, or a company ripping off their loyal customers.
They're about a 44 year old man enjoying them, having fun with them, and showing off his somewhat warped sense of humor to the public.
As always, thank you for reading, Robert
