a family blog about baseball cards
Great topic. Mine is a 1974 Topps Football #274 of Dan Fouts. I was actually planning a post about it soon. I think I'll set it for tomorrow.
That is, without a doubt, Mr. Granderson in the background. Future Card Cameo post it is!What strikes me about this card is how odd it is. Context suggests that Durbin is making a warm-up pitch given the complete absence of an umpire or batter. Along those lines, the middle infields are nowhere to be seen.At the same time, Curtis appears to be in ready position and watching the pitch, as though it is about to be drilled to right-center. How strange.
1984 Fleer Glenn Hubbard. The only thing NOT going on in the background of that card is Michael Jackson dancing with the Pope.
My favorite odd background is a minor league card of an old friend, Rick Stelmaszek.I wrote about it here (and pictured it)...http://johngysbeat.blogspot.com/2009/05/rick-stelmaszek-sagapart-8.htmlThere is a woman sitting to the left and behind him who appears to be checking him out.
