Bizarro Baseball.

It's not the lonely balance, it's the shadows!

It's not the old technology! It's the Mickey Mouse gloves!

It's not the grown up T-ball, it's the stare!

It's not the glove for dessert or the baseballs for lunch, it's the scary plastic chairs!

It's not the athleticism, it's the neatly opened bag!

Ack.

It's not the altitude, it's the cheerfulness!

It's not the glove, it's the seriousness!

It's not the completely odd setting, it's the wild smile!

And we end with this transitional moment, where baseball and bizarro meet, as a tribute to Heartbreaking, as we verge upon a case of Inappropriate Sitting:



It's not the chain link or the one-armed catcher crouch, it's the blue!
All of these cardboard cataclysms are further instances of Tribecards madness. Thank you David!

Check out where the ball ended up on the cheerfulness card. That could be the reason for the cheerfulness.

It's not the glove or the baseballs, it's that awesome Rainbows uniform!

I love watching what things y'all pick out of the assortment of cards sent to you!!

I meant the wild smile card, the ball seems to be lodged in the catchers mask.

What year/who is on the Rainbows card? I'm from Charleston, SC, proud home of the inglorious Rainbows for many years, and would love to hunt down a copy. Thanks!

dinged corners said...

Hi, the player's name is Scott Eyre. 1994 Upper Deck Top Prospects. Two of the corners are a little bit dinged, but if you don't mind that, would you like a one for one trade? Just email us.
