Mark Belanger, 1982 Topps #776

There's something about a baseball card depicting Mark Belanger at bat that just seems mean, like they're making fun of him. Moreover, what is with the bat boy in the background? Is that Paul Williams? Is that the most bizarre pop culture reference that I've made on this blog? Is this week over yet?

I love that 82 Topps series, though.

Rob - I love it too. It's my birth year, and as I collect the set it just seems like it belongs to a whole other era. It's weird to think that guys like Gaylord Perry, Yaz, and Johnny Bench were still active when I was born.
