Useless baseball cards

From the fine Jays' blog the Tao of Stieb, through a tunnel of other sources comes this link to useless baseball cards. Ruminations on Pete Incaviglia's lucky jean shorts? Eminently readable and nostalgic. Of these worthless cards, I've purchased more than a few. And I have two-thousand pounds of granite-hard bubble-gum to show for it.

And as an aside, am I wrong here, or did Fleer's late 80s/early 90s design team include a five year-old, a blind man and Balki Bartokomos? Those had to be the worst-looking pieces of cardboard ever sold to young sports fans.
