Sidney Ponson, 2004 Upper Deck Power Up #40

So what's the most terrifying thing about this card? Is it the giant bulbous head that Upper Deck pasted onto Sidney Ponson's body? Or is it the visual reminder that the Orioles once had the sense and good fortune to trade the immature Aruban righty away, only to immediately reacquire him at a significantly higher salary mere months later? For my two cents, it's option B. The O's weren't a bad team for 14 years by accident.
