Cal Ripken, Jr., 2001 Topps Combos #TC16
Man, is this some of the shoddiest artwork you've ever seen on a card, or what? It looks more like John Lithgow and Jason Alexander than Cal Ripken, Jr. and Lou Gehrig. Hope you kept the receipt, Topps.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
These things are brutal. Every time I see the Kevin Brown on the Koufax-Drysdale-Brown card, I shudder.
Gehrig just looks a bit bloated but Ripken's on his way to being Jay Leno.
